Best airlines for ski and board carriage

My Late Deals has researched 19 airline baggage policies to find the cheapest airlines for ski carriage for your clients.

The top airlines:

Swiss doesn't charge for ski or board carriage, and it doesn't take it out of a passenger's baggage allowance, plus there's no need to pre book. 

Eurowings also allows passengers to bring their equipment for free and don't take it out of their baggage allowance. However, you are strongly recommended to pre book as carriage is dependent on availability. 

The airlines that don't charge but take it out of your baggage allowance:

Air France


Austrian Airlines

British Airways





The airlines that charge and the fee per passenger, per direction, booked in advance: 

Ryanair - £45.00

Tui - £40.00 (minimum)

EasyJet - £37.00 

Aer Lingus - €40.00

Iberia (unless traveling longhaul) - €40.00

Norwegian - £30.00- £35.00 on short flights. £50.00 on long haul. 

Wizz Air - €30.00

Flybe - £30.00 

Jet2 - £30.00

Booking in advance

The research also shows that booking ski carriage in advance will not only save time at the airport but will also save money with the majority of airlines. For example, Aer Lingus charge a €40 fee prior to departure or a fee of €50 payable through the Aer Lingus reservations centre at the airport on the day of departure. 

The majority of airlines don't require pre-booking but there are a few that do require advance notice. It's necessary to pre book ski carriage for the following airlines: Austrian, Flybe, Jet2, KLM, SAS and TUI. 

It's also strongly advised to pre-book on Eurowings, Lufthansa and Wizzair as it might not be guaranteed. Finnair also require travelers to prebook if travelling in a group of ten or more people who will be taking ski/snowboard equipment. 

My Late Deals has created an infographic to show all of their findings which can be seen here:
