Many airlines operating in remote areas require soft luggage which requires none of the sides to have a firm frame. This enables the luggage handlers to easily place the bags into the “belly” of the plane. Maximum weight varies among airlines but as a general rule of them, no more than 20kg’s of luggage is allowed, including hand luggage and camera equipment. Failure to comply to the requirements often results in delays and additional charges to guests. It is recommended that luggage is closed with a sturdy lock in order to avoid any tampering with the contents, particularly at major airports.
