Please can any members give me some advice on my partner flying from Ercan to either Gatwick or Heathrow this month with at least one to two suitcases excess luggage ? Would he have to fly to Turkey & change planes? What would be the best & cheapest option? I know Larnaca flights but he really wants to fly from Ercan if possible. Any good contacts that can help him please would be very much appreciated.



Many thanks

usually flights from ercan via turkey are on the same plane............



you need to do some research on the various carriers websites to check baggage allowance and excess baggage charges..........



don't discount looking at flights from larnaca - seem to recall BA do a higher than average baggage allowance.......

Yes that is correct negativenick, i find BA the best just so easy & comfortable, i wish he would just fly from Larnaca as i think it will work out cheaper anyway as they charge 30 or 40 euros per case not per kilo. That's how Easyjet Monarch etc.. make their money. At least BA you get a meal, drinks,movie ,newspapers &they ask if you need anything? Never got that on the others. Thanks for your advice.

Would advise to fly BA from Larnaca and you can take up to 10 suitcases at 28 each case.

Agree with message 4. Fly BA from Larnaca. If you pay at the airport for excess luggage, though, you pay 35 a case. It's only 28 when you book in advance, online.

if we go back to the uk we take a golf bag (fold flat in our case). when we came back last autumn think the charge was a straight 20.00 for a golf bag and there is no weight restriction so we get loads into it!!! check the airlines terms and conditions first to make sure this is still the case. should you wish to borrow one please let us know .. also, understand from what friends have said that excess baggage booked in advance is a lot cheaper so may be worth talking to the airline?
