Delayed Baggage

Follow the simple steps below to file a report. This applies only if the last flight in your itinerary is operated by Singapore Airlines, otherwise lodge your report with the operating airline.



1. Lodge a report: A delayed baggage report can be lodged online or at the Lost & Found Office at the arrival airport. Ensure that you receive a copy of the report.


2. Receive your reference number: You will receive a 10-character File Reference Number to be used for future correspondence regarding your case.


3. Get status updates: We will send email updates for up to seven days. Alternatively, you can also access the baggage portal here.

In the unlikely event that your baggage is still not located after seven days, you can contact our local Lost & Found Office for a baggage claim form to file a claim. Alternatively, you can make a claim through your travel insurance.


  • If you’ve purchased a travel insurance policy to cover your recent travel, you can consider making a claim against your travel insurance policy, which may provide you with a more comprehensive insurance coverage.

If your checked baggage arrived damaged, immediately make a report at the airport.


Based on the description / evidence of damage, our agents will assess the damage and raise a report.


Please note our liability for damaged baggage is based on our Conditions of Carriage and/or the Warsaw or Montreal Conventions, unless a higher value has been declared in advance, our liability remains limited.


We are also not responsible for baggage damage due to normal wear and tear, which includes:

  • Cuts, scratches, scuffs, dents and marks;
  • Damage to or loss of protruding parts, including straps, pockets, pull handles, hangar hooks, wheels, external locks, security straps, or zipper tabs;
  • Damage due to improper or overpacking;
  • Baggage accepted under the conditions of the Limited Release Tag - including items retrieved or confiscated by airport authorities or security personnel.

Please do not include valuables, important documents or money in your checked baggage. Your fragile or perishable items should not be carried in checked baggage as well.
