Collecting your Hold 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). This form can only be provided in the baggage hall. It’s not possible to get a copy after you leave. Without a completed PIR form we will be unable to process any claims.
