Hi Waggingtail,

Here's the official IATA policy on that I posted awhile back.

Hi everyone,

A while ago someone was asking about what you need to do to carry ashes onboard a flight. Although I can't locate the topic, I think the general reply was you don't need to do anything.

I just checked the airline I work for's rulebook, and the IATA regulations are as follows.

You must declare you are carrying the ashes and provide:

* Importation permission from the country you're travelling to

* Certificate of Death

* Certificate of Cremation

* Certificate from the mortician stating that the inner container of the urn is hermetically sealed.

The undertakers can usually assist you in getting these certificates organised. The ashes can then be either checked as baggage or carried onboard. If you wish you can purchase a seperate seat for the ashes at normal price.


Hope this helps!
