Baggage Policy


Central Mountain Air’s route network covers a wide variety of communities, some with limited scheduled service. Some stage lengths are long and aircraft may have limited baggage/cargo capacity. While we try to accommodate any additional pieces of baggage on the flight with you, you may be asked by the airport agent to prioritize one bag. We would request you prepack a priority piece with your most essential items.


Carry-On/Skycheck Baggage Allowance


Oversized carry-on bags are not permitted on our aircraft, and may cause flight delays for all passengers. Please ensure your

carry-on bags are within the maximum allowed size as indicated below; they are required to fit in the sizing device at check-in and boarding gates.

You may carry onboard items which fall within the 2 piece carry-on/skycheck allowance: one (1) carry-on bag or suitcase (wheels and handles included in the size) and one (1) personal article like a briefcase, laptop computer, diaper bag, camera case, cartons or other similar item.
