Checked Baggage Rules

Before travelling we recommend going over also the items you want to pack in your checked baggage. It is prohibited to take items, which may endanger the aircraft, passengers or crew, into the aircraft.

If you have any further questions concerning checked baggage rules, please contact the Civil Aviation Administration at the e-mail address ecaa[A]ecaa.ee.

Before you travel, you should always carefully consider how you distribute your things between your hand baggage and your checked baggage. It is prohibited to take items, which may endanger the aircraft, passengers or crew, into the cabin of the aircraft. The baggage may not contain highly combustible or flammable, explosive, corrosive, poisonous or otherwise hazardous substances or items.

All passengers and their baggage (incl. checked baggage) will go through security control. We recommend that you place all items prohibited from being carried in hand baggage in your checked baggage.

Explosive and incendiary substances and devices as well as devices that can be used to cause serious injury or to threaten the security of the aircraft, are prohibited from being carried in checked baggage. This includes:

  • ammunition*
  • fuses
  • detonators and safety fuses
  • mines, grenades and other military munition
  • fireworks and other pyrotechnics (e.g. sparklers)
  • smoke cartridges and smoke bombs
  • dynamite, gunpowder and plastic explosives

* As an exception, the passenger may carry in checked baggage the ammunition of firearms permitted to be used for civilian purposes on condition that:

a) ammunition is transported pursuant to procedure set out in the Aviation Act and Weapons Act
b) carrying the ammunition into the country of destination is permitted
c) ammunition is transported in accordance with the rules of the air carrier
