Checked and cabin luggage in Bolivian flights

Airlines in Bolivia use for some itineraries smaller planes (about 60 passengers). In these planes, checked luggage cannot exceed 20kg (about $35 USD per additional kilogram). Cabin luggage cannot exceed 5kg and must be small. Additional kilos will be at the expense of the travelers.


Some airports in Bolivia are located in altitude they are on climate-sensitive. This situation can cause flight delays and sometimes flight cancellation. Airlines also can change without prior notice the flights schedules; for instance, a flight planned on the morning can be changed to the afternoon, and inversely. So your travel program can be perturbed or modified. In these cases, we might try to find the most appropriate situation for the satisfactory continuation of you trip but you will not have any compensatory allowance.
