Possible Baggage Problems

Possible Baggage Problems

DELAYED BAGGAGE

If your checked baggage does not arrive on the corresponding baggage conveyor, a Customer Service Agent will issue a Baggage Irregularity Report.

We will do everything we can to ensure that your baggage is delivered within a maximum of 24 hours after your flight arrives.

You can call 01 800 122 8000 (option 4, ask for the baggage department) for more information about how to track your baggage.

LOST BAGGAGE

If we haven't located your baggage within 3 days of your arrival, you may request a Claim Form at the airport of destination.

Send the completed Claim Form along with proof of purchase of the claimed items, your boarding pass, ID, a valid baggage claim check, and the Baggage Irregularity Report that you received at the airport.

We’ll get in touch with you shortly after receiving your documents or, if you prefer, you can call 01 800 122 8000 for more information about the retrieval of your lost baggage or, if applicable, to request the Baggage Guarantee compensation. 

DAMAGED BAGGAGE

File your initial damage claim as soon as you arrive at your destination and a Customer Service Agent will issue a Baggage Irregularity Report.

If you report the damage later, Volaris will still conduct the investigations relevant to your claim, but it will not be subject to compensation. You may request a Claim Form at the airport of destination. Complete the Claim Form and submit it or hand it in at the airport along with your boarding pass, ID, a valid baggage claim check, and the Baggage Irregularity Report that you received at the airport.

We’ll get in touch with you shortly after receiving your documents or, if you prefer, you can call 01 800 122 8000 for more information about the compensation process.
