When will Baggage Restrictions change?

If meteorological conditions or operational requirements dictate, it may be necessary to restrict passenger's luggage allowances. Sharp Airlines will endeavour to place your baggage on the next available flight.

We hate saying no but the safety of our passengers and crew always comes first. That's why items that are likely to pose a risk to safety and security or, can be used to cause harm, are carefully restricted or banned altogether.

Dangerous goods are also known as restricted articles and hazardous materials. Their carriage on aircraft is governed by the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority Regulations.
