Baggage, Lost & Damaged Properties
Q :What is my allowance for checked baggage?
- ValueLite service includes only 7kg hand luggage with no checked baggage option.
- ValueXtra allows you to add 1 piece checked baggage to your booking (maximum 20kg) and an extra checked bag (maximum 20kg).
- ValuePremium passengers have 2 pieces checked baggage included. The weight limits on these bags must not be more than 30kg maximum.
Q :What is my allowance for cabin baggage?
Liquor, cigarettes and perfume in reasonable quantities are also permitted in addition to the above. As a general rule, all liquids, gels and aerosols, pastes, lotions, creams, drinks and other items of similar consistency must be in containers with a capacity no greater than 100ml. Such items might include the following:
- Hair gel
- hair spray
- Suntan lotions
- Liquid or aerosol deodorants
- Cosmetics such as mascara and lip gloss
- Other items of similar consistency
We expect you to be able to lift your own bag into the overhead locker. Cabin crew can assist you if you are elderly, travelling with young children or have a condition that requires support.
All cabin baggage must be of a size that fits under the seat in front of you and must fit in one of the overhead lockers. You are not allowed to place bags and other items behind your legs. It is also important to note that items are not permitted to obstruct the aisles and the emergency exits. This is forbidden by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority.
While disembarking and taking items out of the overhead lockers, always look after the safety of your fellow passengers. Ensure you follow the limitation on weight, which helps minimise the risk of injury to passengers, should a bag fall from an overhead locker.
Q :How will my baggage allowance be calculated?

Q :What should I do if my baggage is lost or damaged?
A 'Property Irregularity Form (PIF)' would be given to you to fill and a ticket will be raised which will contain a unique reference number that we can use to trace your baggage. Then you can use your reference number to check the status of your baggage.
In the report you should include as much information about your baggage as possible, including the colour, brand and any identifying marks. If you have left the airport without filling out a report, please get in touch with us as soon as possible.
When we receive your baggage, we'll contact you to arrange a delivery time.
