Luggage/Freight:

Banana boxes used to transport food.

Luggage allowance varies according to which fare you book. For some of our passengers who wish to take food, wine, beer, bedding and other large items, they can quickly reach their luggage limit. In order to allow passengers a way to take more gear with them on their travel, we have various freight options available:

  • $8 per food box when you pay direct credit before flight or $10 on pickup
  • $10 per wine & beer box
  • Freight: $2 per kg (in 15-18kg lots) – minimum charge $10
  • Priority freight $113.00 for up to 50 kg

 

For food and alcohol, the Countdown website lets customers order their items in a food box which is delivered to Fly My Sky Auckland Airport. Passengers can pick this up at the Claris terminal, Great Barrier Island.

A large infant may take all of the adult’s luggage allowance which will make the adult’s luggage over weight. The excess luggage charge is $2 per kg. Excess luggage travels on the next flight with available weight space.
