The transport of your musical instrument is subject to prior authorization from Cabo Verde Airlines. It can be carried in the cabin or in the hold, depending on its weight, dimensions, nature and type of aircraft.

Check the conditions of carriage in the cabin and in the hold.

In the Cabin

To travel with the musical instrument at your side, in the aircraft cabin, you must book an extra seat that will accommodate the instrument.

The maximum weight allowed for transport in the cabin is 30 kg / 66.13 lbs. The maximum dimensions allowed are: 155x42x25 from the floor in the cabin or 110x42x50 on top of the seat.

To book the transport of your musical instruments in the cabin, you must contact our Call Center, at least 72 hours before the Flight. 

Under certain circumstances, in case of large musical instruments, it may be necessary to book more than one extra seat. For security reasons, this decision will be taken by Cabo Verde Airlines.
