Here below are some things to consider when importing raw meat to Iceland from Greenland. This should be followed for example before going on a hunting trip abroad.

-When arriving in Iceland the customs agents take the meat/fish into their possession. Usually a passenger is allowed 3 kg. of meat/fish anything over needs to be handled specially by the customs agents. The passenger is responsible for contacting the customs office to acquire the meat/fish.

-The customs agents store the meat/fish in the Air Iceland freezer.

-The passenger will receive a manifest from the customs agents that will be used to collect the items again.

-Next the passenger should contact someone to handle the customs for their meat/fish for them for example TVG Zimsen, Jónar transport or Midlun Keflavik.

-Most of the time there is a customs fee.

After that the passenger will get a confirmation from the customs agency that everything is in order and the meat/fish can be picked up at Air Iceland cargo department.

No raw food is delivered without the confirmation from the customs agency.


Importing the following equipment is strictly prohibited:

Used fishing equipment such as fishing rods, reels, hooks/lures/flies, waders and nets, unless it has been disinfected by approved methods.

Packing Fragile Baggage

All baggage must be packed in such a manner as to withstand normal handling at an airport, where it will come into contact with other baggage and equipment used for loading for transportation. Care must be taken to ensure that the baggage is properly packed and that no hazardous goods are included.

In the event that any loose items are hanging on the exterior of the baggage, such as hiking boots, water bottles or other camping equipment, the passenger must be asked to ensure that such items are secured so as not to pose a hazard to employees or a risk of causing damage.

If baggage is checked-in without sufficient protection, any resulting damages are the responsibility of the passenger.

Packing fragile items in normal checked-in baggage falls under the rules on limitations to liability (for further information, see terms and conditions for air fare).

Prams/pushchairs must be in thick, transparent plastic bags or packed in suitcases/boxes and the wheels removed if possible. No other items should be included with checked-in prams in such packaging.

Bicycles must either be packed in transparent plastic, special bicycle boxes or packed in suitcases/boxes.

Backpacks and other baggage with unsecured straps and items strapped onto checked-in baggage must be in transparent plastic bags.

Musical instruments must be in hard cases. Soft cases or bags are not sufficient protection.

Plastic bags can be purchased in most destinations within Iceland.

Carts, wagons, car seats, skiing equipment, golf sets, wheelchairs, bicycles, climbing gear, scuba diving equipment, water skiing equipment, wind surfers, weapons and ammunition, musical instruments and works of art are not normal baggage. Air Iceland Connect recommends that such items are packed so that they are protected from damage. The airline recommends that passengers purchase separate baggage insurance for the transportation of the above items.

If passengers choose to check-in baggage that is not appropriately packed, they do so at their own risk, as they are aware that the items in question will come into contact with baggage conveyors and other baggage.

Each passenger is responsible for packing his/her baggage in such a manner that its contents will not be damaged. Air Iceland Connect accepts no liability for damages to the contents of baggage due to liquids or foodstuffs that a passenger places in his/her luggage, irrespective of whether the flight is delayed or the luggage itself is damaged.

All baggage should be properly labelled on the inside and on the outside with the name of the passenger, together with the passenger’s e-mail address, telephone number and home address.


Is your luggage travelling somewhere without you? Or is it broken beyond repair?
Luggage trouble is always inconvenient and we’re really sorry if that happened on your journey.

It’s important to be well informed on what counts as damaged luggage, what your rights are when it comes to delayed luggage, and what to do if your bag just doesn’t show up.

Here is some important information that will help you know what to do if there is a problem with your luggage.

Also, please report any and every luggage incident you may have to the service desk when you land.

- Securing your bag, specifically loose or removable parts, is your responsibility.
- If your bag cannot hold items anymore and can’t function as a secure object to move items in, you may have the right to compensation.
