Baggage Fees & Policies

All passengers are allowed one free personal item (16x16x9) up to 16 lbs. Overweight personal items, may be charged a baggage fee. Due to the weight and balance constraints, our priority is to carry customer’s first bag. We cannot guarantee transportation on the same flight for a second bag. Additional baggage may, however, be checked-in and accepted on a standby, space-available basis. You will be notified by Aleutian Airways about picking up standby baggage when it arrives.
