A small musical instrument, such as a violin or smaller instrument, you can bring in the cabin instead of a piece of hand baggage. It needs to fit in the overhead baggage compartment.
Larger instruments which do not fit in the overhead baggage compartment or under the seat can be taken into the cabin to be transported on a seat. Your instrument can be no longer than 140 cm (55 inch) and no heavier than 45 kg (100 lbs). This seat needs to be booked in advance via the KLM Customer Contact Centre.
Your musical instrument may weigh max. 23 kg (50,5 lbs) in Economy Class and max. 32 kg (70,5 lbs) in Business Class. It must be packed in a hard suitcase. Please make sure that your instrument is properly packed, as we are not liable for any damage. An extra fee applies if your instrument is larger than L + W + H 158 cm (62 inches) or weighs more than 23 kg (50,5 lbs) in Economy Class.
If your instrument weighs more than 32 kg (70,5 lbs) or measures more than L + W + H 300 cm (118 inch), please make a reservation via the KLM Customer Contact Centre. You will need to pay a fee. Please make your reservation as early as possible, but no later than 48 hours before departure.
