Check-in musical instruments

Can I take my musical instrument?

Passengers can purchase an additional seat for musical instruments such as cellos. These can be accepted provided that they can be securely fastened in the aircraft seat. Additional seats must be purchased via the bmibaby call centre on 0905 8282828 (Calls cost 65p per minute from a BT Landline. Calls from mobiles and other networks will be considerably more) to obtain the standard published fare available for the requested dates of travel (subject to availability). All musical items will be charged at £17.99 (€22) per sector per item on the website and £23.00 (€28) per sector per item when booked through the bmibaby call centre or airport.

One (1) small musical instrument, which must fit in the overhead locker, will be allowed as a second item of cabin baggage (no items other than the instrument and its accessories may be carried in the case) this is strictly subject to the Captain's discretion. For musical items that you wish to be transported in the aircraft hold, please see sporting equipment and outsized items.
