You may bring your small musical instrument (Such as small Guitar, Violin, Violas, Piccolos, Flutes, Clarinets, Trumpets, Oud … etc.) on board as part of your carry‐on baggage allowance in cabin, provided that it meets the current EGYPTAIR’s carry‐on size requirements (08 Kgs / 118 Cm ) including the hard case.
we advise you to carry your instrument in a hard case, whether it is travelling in the cabin or in the hold, and ensure you are properly insured. We cannot accept instruments for travel in soft cases. Economy class passenger holding musical instruments inside the customer cabin is not entitled for carry-on baggage, but he is entitled to carry personal items such as ladies hand-bag, laptop …. etc.
Note: In certain cases we may ask first and business class customers to check their second Piece of hand-bag:
Large Musical instruments Such as (Cellos, Guitar, saz , Kanoon,… etc.) is accepted as checked baggage due to their size, shape, weight and length.
The customer is allowed to carry musical instrument as part of his free baggage allowance (within the permitted Weight and size limits).
If your baggage count (musical instrument + number of other bags to be checked) exceeds the maximum number of items allowed by your fare type, or Its size and weight exceeded the free baggage allowance, an additional fees will be paid by the customer as below
Extra seat should be booked and paid by the customer who required to transport musical instrument inside the Customer cabin due to its valuable, fragile nature or the musical instrument does not fit in the overhead compartment at least 24 hours before your flight
you can purchase a seat for your musical instrument in its case (Such as Cellos, Guitar…. etc.) provided that:
If the weight of the musical instruments exceeds 32 KGS or 203 Cm, it must be accepted as cargo.
Instruments larger than a cello (e.g. Double-bass, Harp, Geomungo …etc.) there is no option to purchase a seat as these instruments are too large and heavy and must be accepted as cargo only.
