Please read our Elite Categories section to see if you have any LATAM Pass or LATAM Fidelidade benefit relating to your baggage allowance.

Your baggage will always be labeled with the final destination of your trip. Your baggage will be labeled to the final destination of your trip, as long as the flights are within the same reservation.
In spite of the above, in some cases you must remove it at the point of connection to carry out processes such as Customs or change of airport, and return it to the check-in counters.

On LATAM itineraries, the most permissive baggage allowance will apply when the entire itinerary is on the same reservation.
