Frequently asked questions
What is the bagage surcharge for flying with a bike?
Again, there are differences between airline companies. Some take your destination into account when calculating the surcharge.
You should always inform your airline or travel agency that you will be travelling with a bicycle when booking your ticket.
What is the weight limit for bags for airline travel?
The limit may vary from one company to the next. Many airlines have set a maximum weight of 25 kg per bag. You should always enquire about rules and restrictions before leaving for your trip.
Is there a risk that the low pressures of an airplane bagage compartement will cause the Helium’s air bags to burst?
No. the airbags never reach a very high pressure because of their large volume. Just like bicycle tires will not blow up during air travel, the inflatable walls inside the Helium bike case will easily be able to withstand pressure fluctuations.
