Sefer Torah on Plane



I need to transfer a Sefer Torah on the plane, do I need to hold it during entire plane ride? Can I send it as luggage if it’s double wrapped and with a proper case?



You may put it in the overhead compartment.

As experience has shown the baggage in the baggage compartment is not treated well – thrown around etc. and is definitely not respectful for a Sefer Torah.
