We do allow you to take ashes into the cabin of the aircraft and you don’t need pre-authorisation from fastjet to do so. Here’s what you need to know.

The ashes can be carried in your hand baggage provided that the following requirements are met.

  • You are carrying a copy of the death certificate and a copy of the cremation certificate.

  • The ashes are securely packaged/sealed in an appropriate container.

  • On arrival at the airport’s security gates, you inform security staff that you are carrying ashes.


Carriage of Human Remains

We may accept human remains in a coffin for carriage on all our routes. This will need to be discussed and arranged in advance with BidAir (our cargo partners) by the funeral home which is caring for the deceased.
