Harbour Air is happy to accept many types of luggage including backpacks, duffel bags, carry-on and full size suitcases, plus many more! When you arrive for check-in, please bring all your baggage to the desk to be weighed and tagged. You may check in your bags or keep them with you until boarding the flight. At the aircraft, all bags including carry-on items will be stowed in the cargo area of the aircraft. For safety purposes, only very small items that will fit in the seat-back pocket may be carried with you into the cabin. Upon arrival at your destination, your bags will be unloaded by our crew and handed to you on the dock at the aircraft.

Please keep in mind, it is important your chosen luggage is able to securely store all items, ensuring all items are in fastened compartments or pockets. Harbour Air has a unique operating environment where luggage is passed from dock, over water, to aircraft. To ensure all your personnel items are safe and secure, we recommend verifying your luggage and all contents are well secured before check-in. Harbour Air cannot be held liable for any contents that may fall out of passenger’s luggage.

Luggage Allowances & Dimensions

We offer goFARE options that include different luggage allowances. There is no restriction on the quantity of luggage items you may bring, however, because of the nature of our aircraft we must account for the weight of all items including small bags like purses and briefcases. Depending on your fare choice, you may bring additional/excess luggage (fees may apply) on a space-available, standby basis. We will do our best to ensure your bags accompany you on your flight, however, if the flight is full then the bag may have to travel on a later flight.

Travelling with Excess Luggage

We understand that situations arise where passengers may be travelling with more baggage than is included in the guaranteed luggage allowance associated with our goFARES. Please read on to find out about the options available to help make travelling with excess luggage a little easier.

Confirming Additional Luggage

To guarantee that your additional baggage travels on the same flight as you, we recommend purchasing an additional seat on the flight which will guarantee you an additional 150 lbs of luggage on domestic flights.

For flights between downtown Vancouver and Seattle, guaranteed carriage of additional baggage may be reserved in advance according to the fee structure below by calling our reservations agents at 1.800.665.0212.

  • Up to 50 lbs of additional baggage = $96 CAD
  • 51 to 150 lbs of additional baggage = $370.50

Sending Luggage Early

Passengers travelling on domestic flights, who wish to send their bags on an earlier flight, are welcome to do so. Simply drop your bag off at the terminal in advance of your flight and we will send it on the next available flight for you to pick up when you land at your destination. Fees for excess luggage still apply for bags sent early.

Storing Luggage

Passengers travelling on domestic flights may store their luggage at our facilities at no extra cost during the day of travel. For overnight luggage storage, a $10 per day fee will apply for each bag.
