Packing of Bicycles

 

Bicycles must be securely packed. Special boxes and bags are obtainable from bicycle outlets and associations. Please make use of this type of packaging as it prevents your bicycle from possible damage. South African Airways will not take liability for damages of bicycles if they are not securely packed in the special boxes or bags.

Kindly ensure that the box or bag is clearly marked with your contact details.

Handlebars should be turned parallel with the frame, pedals removed or turned inward, tyres deflated and the seat must be put down. All electronic equipment must be removed and transported separately.

Please note also that the carriage of bicycle tyres in the overhead compartment of the aircraft will not be permitted as the tyres do not meet the minimum size requirements and this may cause damage to both the aircraft and the bicycle equipment.

The opening of bicycle boxes / bags may be conducted as a security measure.

As per IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations we may allow a maximum of four small cylinders, containing carbon dioxide or other suitable gas in Division 2.2, per person. The water capacity may not exceed 50ml per cylinder. Due to the number of bicycles we are accepting we will limit these to two cylinders per bicycle.
