Air France baggage allowance

Carry-on baggage

Cabin class determines your carry-on luggage allowance. Travellers in the Economy class can bring one baggage item and one accessory, like a briefcase or purse, on board. Folks in the Premium Economy, Business, and La Première sections are allowed two bags and one accessory.

Cabin baggages mustn’t exceed 55 cm x 35 cm x 25 cm.  Accessory items cannot be larger than 40 cm x 30 cm x 15 cm. In terms of weight, economy passengers’ items mustn’t be heavier than 12 kg, and that limit jumps to 18kg for folks in the upper-class cabins.

Checked baggage

Like the airline’s carry-on luggage policy, its checked baggage allowances are based on cabin class status.

  • Light Fare Economy: On some Air France flights, travelers can purchase ultra-cheap tickets if they agree not to check any baggage. It’s known as a “light fare economy” ticket, and travelers who buy these tickets must pay for a checked suitcase. A one-bag limit is enforced.
  • Regular Economy: Travelers with economy tickets can check one bag that weighs up to 23 kilograms (50 pounds) for free.
  • Premium Economy: Premium Economy ticket holders can check two suitcases for free; each can weigh up to 23 kilograms (50 pounds).
  • Business: Travelers who spring for business class cabins can check two baggage items that weigh up to 32 kilograms (70 pounds) each.
  • La Première: Air France’s first-class cabin, La Première, comes with many perks, including a three-bag checked luggage allowance. Each one can weigh up to 32 kilograms (70 pounds).

Excess baggage 

If your checked baggage exceeds the size or weight limit, Air France will assess an excess baggage levy at check-in. You’ll pay between €25 and €300 depending on the overage amount and flight route. Unfortunately, you cannot pre-book overweight or oversized luggage with Air France.
