U.S. Department of Transportation Issues Final Rule Regarding Air Travel with Musical Instruments

Life as a traveling musician will hopefully become easier thanks to the new ruling.

Washington, D.C. (January 6, 2015) -- On December 30th, the U.S. Department of Transportation finally gave travelling musicians the relief they were looking for. Here's a quote from their ruling:

Under the rule, musical instruments as carry-on items are treated no differently from other carry-on items and the stowage space should be made available for all carry-on items on a “first come, first served” basis.

The DOT provided a page to help musicians prepare for air travel. Click here to read the full text of the ruling.
