We need to take a small mobility scooter. 45kg total weight, breaks down to 3 pieces, battery is heaviest part at 15kg. What is Cathay\'s policy? Can we gate-check?

Admin Reply :

This will naturally be carried in check in baggage. Since weight of one bag shall not exceed 32 kg and dimension shall not be more than 203cms, you shall pack accordingly, otherwise it will not be allowed to be carried.
