What happens when my baggage is oversized or overweight?

When your baggage exceeds the permitted dimensions and weight, you will be charged an additional "overweight" and "oversized" fee for carriage. This charge will apply to all pieces of baggage that are over the standard dimensions, taking into account the weight and dimensions that your checked baggage must have.

Keep in mind
Transporting non-conventional baggage, including baggage oversized or overweight, is subject to the signature of the limited liability certificate issued by Avianca, which you will find on the back of the baggage tag. It clarifies that Avianca is not responsible for the condition of your baggage when transported in the hold.

Avoid additional charges and add all the luggage you need to your reservation.
