New baggage restrictions at OR Tambo International Airport
Please be advised there are new baggage restrictions that have been implemented as of 25 March 2019.
This is to prevent blockages and breakdowns in the baggage-handling system caused by bags that do not have any flat surfaces or that have long straps or grips – as per IATA guidelines. These are the largest source of jams and can shut down sections of the baggage-handling system, delaying baggage delivery to aircraft, and inconveniencing passengers and airlines.
The new rules are:
- Only regular-shaped bags will be allowed to be checked in. This means that the bags must have at least one flat surface to be accepted
- Round or irregular-shaped bags will not be allowed
- Bags with longs straps will not be allowed
Passengers who try to check in bags that don’t conform to these rules will have the option of having their baggage wrapped with one flat side at airport-approved baggage wrapping stations.
