Baggage and transferring

If the ticket you purchased for your trip includes a transfer on a connecting flight in less than 24 hours, your check-in baggage will usually be sent to your final destination. The baggage claim tag that you receive when dropping off your luggage always states your bag’s final destination.
When transferring, you do need to collect your baggage and check it in again for your connecting flight, if:
- You have purchased two or more tickets from different airlines that have different conditions.
- Your transfer is from an intercontinental flight to a domestic flight (for example, in the United States).
- You arrive at one airport, and your connecting flight departs from another airport.
- Part of your journey is by bus or rail.
