Baggage Rules, Limits, & Fees
When planning your trip with Air France, it is important to familiarize yourself with their baggage rules, limits, and fees to ensure a smooth and hassle-free journey. Understanding the guidelines for carry-on bags, checked baggage, and special items will help you pack efficiently and avoid any unexpected charges.
Air France allows passengers to bring one carry-on bag and one personal item onboard. The carry-on bag should not exceed the dimensions of 55cm x 35cm x 25cm (21.7in x 13.8in x 9.9in) and must weigh no more than 12kg (26.5lbs). The personal item can be a handbag, laptop bag, or small backpack, and should fit under the seat in front of you.
The checked baggage allowance for Air France varies depending on the travel class and the destination. For most Economy Class passengers, the allowance is one piece of baggage weighing up to 23kg (50.7lbs) for domestic and short-haul international flights. Business Class passengers enjoy a higher allowance of two bags, each weighing up to 32kg (70.5lbs).
Extra, Oversized, and Special Items
If you plan to bring any extra, oversized, or special items, such as sporting equipment or musical instruments, additional rules and fees may apply. Air France offers a dedicated service called "Sports Equipment" for items like skis, golf clubs, and bicycles. Musical instruments can be carried as part of your checked baggage, provided they meet the weight and dimension limits.
Note that air carriers often change the details of these rules and requirements, so be sure to check directly with the airline on the day you are flying for the most accurate information.
