Non-standard baggage

You may have to carry large or heavy items, such as sporting equipment or musical instruments, with you at times when you fly. Most of these items can be checked in or carried on board. Upon arrival, the checked baggage may come out on a different carousel from your normal baggage. Do seek advice from the airport staff and/or look for the odd-sized baggage signanges at the airport.
Odd-sized baggage should not exceed 200cm (length) x 75cm (width) x 80cm (height) in dimension. If the item(s) exceed(s) the dimension, please seek assistance from the Singapore Airlines Cargo team.

Your sporting equipment counts towards your checked baggage allowance. If you exceed this allowance, the usual additional baggage charges will apply.

If you’re travelling to or from Canada and the USA, most sporting equipment is treated as one piece of baggage. A canoe is treated as two pieces of baggage. If you’re travelling to or from Canada, your sporting equipment will be charged according to the baggage allowance that applies to your journey.

We are unable to accept any item above 32kg as checked baggage, and these items may have to be re-packed or sent as cargo. Get in touch with your local Singapore Airlines Cargo team prior to your travel if you wish to transport any item above 32kg as cargo.
