  • Small cameras, coats, and purses
  • Medication bag

If a passenger exceeds the maximum number of bags permitted and/or the maximum weight allowed for each bag or the maximum dimensions permitted for each checked or carried on bag, the passenger will be subject to excess baggage charges.

Other Rules and Carry-On Tips

  • Please refer to the Transport Canada and CATSA websites for a detailed list of prohibited carry-on items.
  • Please carry on all personal medications. Medically required syringes and needles are permitted onboard, providing the needle guard is intact, and must be accompanied by the prescription medication with a printed label identifying the medication name and the issuing medical office or pharmacy.
  • All sharp objects, toy guns, sporting articles such as golf clubs, baseball bats, skates, etc. are not allowed as carry-on baggage.
  • Electronic cigarettes or vaporizers are not permitted in checked baggage and must be carried on.
  • Please be prepared to power on all electronic devices (laptops, cell phones, etc.) being carried through the security check point. Calm Air assumes no liability for these items when packed in checked baggage.

Heavier items must be stowed under the aircraft seat, and lighter ones in the overhead bin. Place wrapped items like gifts in your checked baggage, otherwise you may be required to unwrap them at the security check point.
