Click the headline above to view luggage allowances for each route.

Stated luggage allowance includes both checked and carry-on luggage. Bags cannot weigh more than 50lbs each. Specialty luggage (including sports equipment) will be subject to additional fees below, and will be sent on your flight if possible, or on the next available flight. 

With flights operating frequently we are proud to have a high success rate of getting your stand by bag on the flight with you. If you think you will be travelling with more luggage than allotted, please contact the Reservation Department at 1-800-665-0212 for additional options.

How to Confirm Your Additional Luggage

If you want to guarantee all your baggage accompanies you on your flight, please purchase an additional seat on the aircraft.  The extra seat will allow you to bring up to 150lbs of luggage.

Sending Baggage Early

If you want to send bags over early we will happily assist, as long as you have a flight booked that same day. The Additional Baggage Fees still apply.

Baggage Storage Fees

We will hold your luggage at our facilities at no cost if you are flying on that same day.  A $10.00 per day fee will apply for any bags being held at our facilities on the days prior to or after your flight.

Car Seats & Strollers

Passengers travelling with infants or small children may bring one stroller and/or one car seat as additional pieces of luggage for their child at no additional charge. These items must adhere to the size and weight restrictions of the aircraft operating on the route of travel (noted below).

Sporting Equipment

Your sporting goods are part of your luggage weight allowance, however, all sporting equipment will travel on a space available basis. Please call to ensure your ski’s/snowboard will fit in our aircraft.   When shipping your sporting equipment it does take extra time and care to handle and load, so the following fees apply:

Equipment Handling Fee
Hockey bag + sticks $5.00
Ski's / Snowboard $5.00
Golf clubs $5.00
Bike* $10.00

*When shipping your bike, please remove your front wheel so we can fit it securely in our luggage area. Please note that certain aircrafts will not be able to accommodate a bike.

We do require that bags weigh no more than 50lbs (per piece). Should you find that you did a little extra shopping or have that extra gift which puts the weight above the limit, we do have excess luggage bags available for purchase!

Carry on items: Please note that some of our aircraft do not permit any carry on items.  Due to the size of the aircraft all items including purses and briefcases will be placed in the baggage compartment for the duration of the flight.

Travelling With a Pet?

The Harbour Air Group welcomes everyone on board, including pets! If you are travelling with a pet, please be aware of the following requirements when making a reservation:

  • Safety First! Pets must be travelling in a hard-shelled travel carrier. No part of the animal is allowed to protrude from the carrier. All carriers must be secure and leak proof. Collapsible kennels are not accepted. We want to keep fyour pet as safe as possible since your pet will be transported in the baggage / cargo area of the aircraft.
  • Both travel carrier and the weight of the pet are included in the stated passenger luggage allowance, see above for more details.
  • Carrier must not exceed 30"L (76cm) X 18"W (45cm) X 24"H (61cm). (Medium Size Kennel)
  • Pet Carriers can be Rented at each of our bases for $35. This is first come, first served and subject to availability. A Credit Card is required for payment. Please call to inquire about availability.
  • Pet Comfort – The pet kennel must be big enough to allow the animal to stand, turn around and lie down comfortably, as per international regulations. If the pet carrier does not allow the animal to do this, Harbour Air reserves the right to refuse transport.
  • Multiple pets in one crate will be authorized provided the total weight complies with the stated luggage allowance and pets are used to cohabitation.
  • Certified Assistance animals (professionally trained as a requirement under the Canadian Air Transportation Regulations) assisting customers with disabilities may travel without a kennel, free of charge but will require an approved harness (ie. Vest Harness) which will be secured on board. Prior notification is required.
