If your luggage weighs more than your allowance, the airline will usually charge extra you for additional baggage. The extra charge can be either per additional kilo or per item. Please do check with the airline for further details. However, the maximum allowance for any single item is 32kg. If the item exceeds this weight, you will need to contact the airline and arrange for it to be shipped as cargo.
For large items such as sports equipment (bikes, surfboards, etc) or musical instruments, airlines have different policies and different charges.
