Today we present a short summary of the baggage policy of Air France.
Let us find out what you can cram into your bags when travelling with this well-known French carrier.
Air France: carry on baggage
As a Voyageur/Economy class passenger you are entitled to 1 hand-baggage item not exceeding the maximum size of 55 cm x 35 cm x 25 cm (l+w+h). This includes pockets, handles and wheels.
In addition, one is permitted to carry onto the plane 1 personal item such as a handbag, notebook or camera. The total total weight of both items of cabin baggage is: 12 kg or 26.5 lb.
Air France: checked baggage
The checked baggage allowance depends on your route. In most cases you can have 1 item of checked baggage with the maximum weight of 23 kg at no extra charge. It applies to the lion's share of all routes when travelling in the Voyageur/Economy class.
There are some exceptions though. When you travel to or from certain African airports such as Dar es Salaam, Lagos or Nairobi, you can check in a second item of baggage free of charge. The same goes for passengers going to Quito or Guayaquil as well as those whose first part of the trip departs from Brazil. The last-mentioned group of passengers enjoys even more generous weight allowance: 32 kg.
Passengers travelling on routes between some African countries and USA/Canada can also check in a second piece of baggage free of charge. Examples of such countries are: South Africa, Botswana, and Egypt. For a full overview go to the website of Air France.
