Malaysia Airlines is pleased to accept musical instruments (both electrical and non-electrical) for carriage as checked baggage.
While every care will be taken with your possessions, it is recommended that you purchase additional baggage insurance to cover loss or damage to these items.
All sports equipment, including golfing equipment, will be carried as part of the free checked baggage allowance, and will be subject to excess baggage charges if overweight.
Detailed information on bringing fishing/archery/bowling/skiing equipment, golfing clubs, canoes/kayaks, bicycles, boogie boards, parachutes/hang gliders, scuba diving equipment, cricket equipment and surfboards, please refer to Carriage of Sporting Equipment.
Please note that Limited Release Baggage Tag (LRT) is required for check in of golf clubs using a hard shell golf travel container or any travel bag (e.g. soft sided bag). They will be accepted for check in only upon completion of the LRT. The LRT releases Malaysia Airlines from liabilities on baggage resulting from any pre-existing damage or damage from the normal course of handling.
