Skates on a Plane

Postby Knockers » 16 May 2014, 22:42

Has anyone got some advice on the best way to take my skates on a plane?
I am going to Spain for a week on a campsite so think it would have great practice potential - but we only have hand luggage allowance...
We are flying with pesky Ryanair so they will probably charge me just for thinking about it :0/
Thanks
Jess :0)

I have the exact same Ryanair problem. I was going to argue that they are mobility equipment...

Skates are fine in your onboard hand luggage, but if your taking tools put them in your hold luggage. Helmets can be worn as a hat if needed ;)

Yup, I'm in Spain at the mo, I came with Eastjet.

I put my skates, wheels (I took them off to take up less room) and pads in my hand luggage. Security didn't even open the bag when it had gone through the scanner.

As Silva says, put any tools in the hold, as they won't be allowed in your hand luggage, in the same way as other metals objects aren't e.g. nail files, cutlery etc.


I don't put my skates in the hold purely because I don't want them to go missing - they're a rather expensive thing to lose!

Hmm, we are only taking the one hand luggage bag so that might be a problem.
I wonder how much I would freak my fellow passengers out by wearing a crash helmet on the plane :0)
Technically Brizzee, they are a mobility aid....
