Royal Air Maroc: Transport of sports equipment and service charges

Checked luggage is that which is tagged at the counter and travels in the hold of the plane

Depending on the plane ticket you buy, you will or will not have a checked bag included for free. For example, inercontinental flights or British Airways and Iberia flights include a carry-on bag and another checked in the ticket. However, low-cost companies such as Ryanair or Vueling only include a carry-on bag.

The number and conditions of checked baggage included by Royal Air Maroc is what is called baggage allowance.

In the event that you need to transport sports equipment by plane, you will have to first check if your airline includes it within the baggage allowance for free, or otherwise, it does not include it and you have to pay a fee.

This is what we are going to see in detail below.
