Lost /Damage baggage

They will make a property irregularity report (PIR) to start the process of tracing the missing baggage and to get it to the correct destination on the next available DAE flight. This report needs to be done before leaving the airport arrival area. In case the baggage is not found immediately DAE has 20 days to search for the missing baggage. If the baggage is not found within the mentioned period DAE will compensate the passengers for the lost baggage.
In the case of damage to checked baggage the DAE personal will make a damage report. This report will contain all information to assess the nature of the damage and to look into the possibility to repair or replace the damaged baggage piece.
