Collection of your Hold Baggage

On arrival please remember to check your bag before you leave the baggage hall as someone else on your flight may have a similar bag.

If your bag has been damaged, or if it doesn’t arrive at the carousel, you must go to the baggage counter and report the damage or loss and receive a ‘Passenger Irregularity Form’ (known as a PIR). This form can only be provided in the baggage hall, it’s not possible to get a copy after you leave, and without this form we will be unable to process any claim for your loss.
