Baggage allowance for Finnair flights

When flying with Finnair, you’re always entitled to at least one piece of baggage free of charge.

Baggage allowance Business Economy Pro/Flexible Economy
Intercontinental flights 3 PC 2 PC 1 PC
Flights within Europe and the Middle East 2 PC 2 PC 1 PC

1 PC = one piece of baggage with the maximum weight of 23 kg and external dimensions (length + width + height) of up to 158 cm. A piece of special baggage, for example a musical instrument or golf equipment that fit in these measures can also be regarded as one piece of baggage. In addition, skis up to 220 cm are counted as one piece of baggage.

Use our Baggage allowance calculator to check your baggage allowance for flights operated by Finnair.

Children

A child with his or her own seat has the same basic baggage allowance as an adult travelling in the same travel class. An infant is allowed to have one piece of baggage weighing the maximum of 23 kg.

In addition, children and infants can have a folding pushchair and safety seat.

Finnair Plus and oneworld members

Finnair Plus Platinum, Gold and Silver members and oneworld Emerald and Sapphire members can take one additional bag on oneworld marketed flights operated by Finnair.

In addition, Finnair Plus Gold and Platinum members are allowed to take a set of golf, ski or diving equipment on flights operated and marketed by Finnair.

Additional baggage

If you wish to take more bags than what is included in your checked baggage allowance, you need to pay an extra bag charge for any additional baggage.

If all legs of your flight are operated and marketed by Finnair, you can calculate the extra bag charge and pay it online with our Baggage allowance calculator. When you pay for the additional baggage online, it’ll cost you less than if you pay at the airport.

A heavy bag charge applies to baggage with the maximum weight of 32 kg and/or maximum dimensions of 190 cm x 75 cm x 65 cm. The heavy bag charge is not collected from Business Class passengers or Finnair Plus Platinum or oneworld Emerald members.

Some special items, for example wheelchairs, some sports equipment and large musical instruments, exceeding the maximum measures may be accepted with a prior approval from the airline. Please contact Finnair.

All other baggage exceeding the maximum measures can only be transported as cargo.
