New rules for luggage on OR Tambo Airport (March 2019)

Since March 25, 2019, stricter rules regarding luggage apply at the OR Tambo airport in Johannesburg. Bags and suitcases with a different shape can no longer be checked in. Your luggage must have at least one flat side. If your bag has long straps (straps), these must also be removed. If, upon check-in, it appears that your bag does not meet the requirements, you can have it packaged in plastic at the airport with any additional reinforcement to create a flat side so that it can be carried in the hold (costs for your own account).

The above rules have been introduced to prevent problems with the luggage belts and for faster luggage handling.
