Baggage Policy

  1. Aklak Air can examine the contents of any baggage tendered for transportation of any aircraft and will refuse to accept for transportation any property that will not withstand ordinary handling. Although Aklak Air does not guarantee to carry baggage on the same flight as that on which the passenger is to be transported, every effort will be made to do so.
  2. Notwithstanding any of the subsequent provisions of this policy, Aklak Air will restrict the weight, size and character of baggage and personal property according to the capacity and accommodations of the particular aircraft.
  3. Baggage shall consist only of wearing apparel, non-liquid toilet articles and similar effects for actual use, which are necessary and appropriate for the comfort and convenience of the passenger for the purpose of the journey and not intended for other persons or for sale. Money, jewelry, silverware, samples, negotiable paper securities and similar valuables or business documents will be carried only at the risk of the passenger. Personal baggage may also include computers or camera equipment and accessories. Individual books, magazines, binoculars, coats and ladies’ purses will not be considered as “personal baggage” for purposes of ascertaining weight of baggage, and may be carried by passengers in the cabin, at their own risk, without additional charge.
  4. Baggage must be enclosed in receptacles provided with handles, loops or other suitable means for attaching checks, and sufficiently strong to withstand necessary handling, such as trunks, valises, telescopes, suitcases, and leather hat boxes.
  5. Receptacles when not securely locked, will not be received or checked except on condition that no liability will be assumed for loss of articles there from, whether resulting from negligence of Aklak Air, its servants or agents or otherwise howsoever.
