Delayed Baggage

We do our very best to make sure baggage arrives with our passenger to his/her destination. But sometimes certain unpredictable events such as bad weather conditions, technical issues with baggage handling or torn baggage tag, may lead to baggage being damaged or delayed/missing.

he/she must immediately notify the lost and found department of the company representing Cyprus Airways at the destination airport. Lost and Found Department at each station will perform the search activities and communicate with the passenger by emails, SMS or call in regards to the missing baggage.

Passengers whose baggage has been delayed beyond 24 hours may be compensated for reasonable emergency expenses on the basis of evidence (receipts), such as personal hygiene items, underwear and daily emergency clothing. Compensation is provided only to passengers who are not permanent residents of the country of arrival.

It is a deposit made to the passenger for the immediate expenses for the first 3 days without his luggage.

In this case, if the baggage is not detected within 7 days from the day of arrival at the passenger's destination, then the passenger must contact Cyprus Airways at email address bagclaims@cyprusairways.com providing the claim request number, and a detailed list of the contents of the lost baggage so that we can proceed to further search.
