Checked luggage

The transport of your luggage up to a given limit is included in the price of the ticket although this exemption may vary according to the type of tariff or conditions of your BinterMas loyalty card.


Generally, a basic tariff includes an allowance of 20 kg. The difference in the authorised weight is the so-called "excess luggage," an amount that must be paid by the customer in the airport before being allowed to board. The price per kilogram varies according to the route, so that if you will be carrying more luggage than that authorised on your ticket, please consult the cost in your usual point of sale.


The free baggage allowance is, at least, one piece of luggage weighing 23 kilograms, but this varies depending on the tariff and the destination. The passenger must have confirmed this with his point of sale. The BinterMás Oro and Plata clients will have an additional free baggage allowance weighing 9 kilograms in a single piece of luggage.

The cost of excess baggage over 23 kilograms/piece of baggage up to a maximum of 32 kilograms/piece of baggage is €60 (It will not be possible to check-in pieces of baggage weighing more than 32 kilograms). If the passenger wants to include an additional piece of luggage, the passenger must pay 150 euros for each piece**.

[Except on flights with El-Aaiún (Laâyoune) as departure/destination where only one piece of baggage up to 20Kg is allowed and excess baggage, as from 23Kg, is charged depending on the additional kilos.]

**Additional baggage is considered to all those baggage items the passenger wishes to check in addition to the excess included in the conditions for their ticket. There may be a limit on the number of additional baggage items allowed per passenger for check-in, depending on their flight destination. Generally speaking, at this time, additional baggage to international destinations is limited to 2 extra items, weighing up to 32 kg each.


We remind you that you must not carry dangerous articles in your checked luggage and we recommend that you do not include fragile, perishable or valuable articles (cash, jewellery, precious metals, computers, personal electronic devices, negotiable documents, real estate bonds or other objects of value, business documents, passports and other identification documents or samples) since the airline cannot accept legal responsibility for them so that we recommend that you carry this type of object as carry-on luggage whenever possible. Some types of luggage or content may also be refused at check-in.

Binter informs you that the content of undeclared luggage to the company is the responsibility of the passenger.

Suitable packaging

Your luggage must be properly packaged without its form or volume being likely to damage other luggage or the aircraft's structure.

Forbidden (not allowed)

Matches and lighters since they could be activated by friction.

Fireworks that could detonate by their nature.

Inflammable liquids, fuels, paints, solvents, glues, lighter chargers and small camping gas containers as well as substances that could leak and cause a fire.

Articles for the home such as bleaches and abrasives containing properties or chemical substances that could cause toxic emissions or corrosion.

Electronic equipment that could interfere with the aircraft’s systems and affect flight safety. Electronic Cigarettes can not be included in checked baggage so it must be carried in the hand baggage or with the passenger.

If you are carrying firearms, you must go to the airport firearms department in departures to obtain the necessary authorisation. Firearms must be packed in a suitable case and will be returned by the firearms department in the destination airport.

Some devices as hover boards, air wheels and solo wheels are now banned in both carry on hand baggage and checked hold luggage.
