|Airline Baggage Limits|
Seair and Asian Spirit aircraft flying to the YKR airport on Busuanga are 19 seat LET 410s. There is a limit of 10 kg per ticket for checked luggage. Anything above that amount is charged at PHP 50 per kg (slightly more than $1 US per kg). Any excess luggage will be carried if the airplane has the ability to safely carry the weight.
There is a physical size and weight limit for the baggage compartments in the nose and the body of the aircraft. The size and weight limits for the baggage compartments can not be exceeded.
You can carry a regulator bag sized carry-on that will be weighed with your body and won't count against your 10 kg for checked luggage. If the total of you and your carry-on doesn't exceed 86 kg you should have no trouble.
Problems generally do not happen with a normal mixture of Asian and Anglo tourists, residents and divers. Problems can arise with large groups of big Anglo divers each carrying full diving gear. A full passenger load of big divers with full diving gear can exceeded the carrying capacity of the plane.
With large groups of divers we advise that an additional seat be purchased for every four divers who are carrying their diving equipment. This keeps one body off of the aircraft and ensures that there is sufficient carrying capacity for the dive gear. When the cost of one extra seat is divided among four divers the cost is less than as if you paid for 86 kg of excess baggage. Buying the extra seat guarantees that your diving gear will fly with you.
If your equipment gets bumped off of the flight it has first priority on the next Seair flight once the passengers are accommodated. Since Seair has two to four flights a day you won't be without your gear for long. Dive Right has excellent rental dive equipment.
