TRANSPORTATION OF LUGGAGE
All passengers baggage, including the one that you want to take into the cabin as hand luggage must be presented to the airline personnel during check-in. This requirement is to ensure the safety of your flight. In the interest of flight safety and the safety of your luggage, your stuff should not be left unattended, and you should not carry someone else’s luggage.
