    Prohibited items

    • According to a decision by the EC, it is prohibited to bring certain items on the aircraft. Read more at the Swedish Transportation Administration website

    • Airport security staff have the right to seize items they feel represent a risk to flight safety. For this reason, your carry-on will undergo careful inspection at airports in Sweden and throughout the EU. Read more at the Swedish Transportation Administration website

    • Balance scooters such as hoverboards and solowheels, powered by lithium batteries, must be shipped as airfreight. In this regard, we comply with IATA guidelines for the transport of lithium batteries.

    • Electronic cigarettes, pipes or cigars may not be carried onboard SAS aircraft. These items must be packed in your carry-on during your trip. 

    • Ink cartridges for a printer weighing more than 500 grams/1.1 lbs may not be carried on trips to/from/via the US. This applies to checked baggage and carry-on. Read more at the Federal Aviation Administration's website

    • You are traveling with hazardous goods
    • You are traveling with larger, fragile and valuable baggage
    • You are traveling to/from Great Britain and Ireland with baggage weighing more than 32 kg/ 71 lbs, then air freight must always be chosen

    • Make your damage claim at SAS Arrival Service at the airport where you show the damage. Save all the documentation you receive when making the report since you will need it when you contact us.

    • If your bag has been so badly damaged that its contents have fallen out and are missing, we can compensate you for that as well.
