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’s baggage allowance includes one piece of baggage weighing a maximum of 23 kg.

In addition, these allowances include a folding pushchair and safety seat. Safety seats may be taken into the cabin, space and safety regulations permitting. Please read more here.

When travelling with the ticket type Economy Light, infants and children do not have baggage allowance, but a folding pushchair and safety seat may be transported free of charge. If needed, checked baggage can be added separately for a fee.

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.

When all the flights in your itinerary are operated by Finnair, and the flight number starts with AY and the ticket number with 105, you can pay in advance for up to three additional pieces of baggage or sports equipment within the size and weight of a standard bag.
