Collecting your Checked Baggage

On arrival, please ensure you take the correct bag from the baggage carousel. Do check your bag before you leave the baggage hall as someone else may have a similar bag.

If you receive your bag in damaged condition, 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) and SMS confirmation of your claim reference. These can only be provided in the baggage hall and if you leave the Baggage Hall without a copy of the PIR or SMS confirmation of your claim reference it will not be possible to get a copy of either after you leave.

Please note we are unable to process any claims without a completed PIR form and claim reference.
