JetBlue bicycle fees
Info Last Updated On:
July 13th, 2012
Bicycle Fee: $50 per bike each way and will count as one of your checked bags.
Overweight Bicycle Fee: Overweight fees are waived for bicycles.
Oversize Bicycle Fee:
(L + W + H)
Oversize fees are waived for bicycles.
Max Bicycle Weight: 99 lbs.
Max Bicycle Size: 80 inches is the max size for baggage, yet we were told this size would be overlooked if the bike was properly packed in a bike box.
Notes: Bicycles will be accepted in a hard-sided, padded case designed for bicycles. If not in a hard-sided case, bikes will be accepted with the handle bars secured sideways and pedals removed. The bicycle must also be encased in plastic foam, a cardboard box, or similar material to prevent damage. As always, we suggest a hard case bike box for best protection.

Your bike will be charged $50 each way and it will count as one of your checked-in bags. So if you are checking in one bag and your bike, your total will be $50 (bike fee) + $35 (standard bag fee) = $85. Overweight will not be charged (100+ lbs will not be accepted). JetBlue does not say anything if the bike is oversized. We spoke to a supervisor, which had to call the cargo department in Long Beach to find out for themselves. They were told if the bike is in a hard case the oversize issue would be “overlooked” (most boxes are 88+ inches), but nothing is mentioned of that on their website. JetBlue even told us they would be updating their website with more information because of our inquiry. Hopefully they have new info up soon.
