How to book

  1. Before selling additional baggage, make sure that the PNR is priced.
  2. Create a prepaid excess bag element, e.g. SR PDBG AY NN2/P1/S2 (NN1 = 1 bag, NN2 = 2 bags)
  3. Price with FXG
  4. Add form of payment TMI/M1/FP-VI4012XXXXXXXXXXXX/1212*CV123
  5. Issue EMD: TTM/M1/RT (Only EMD allowed). With cryptic entry EGCD/VAY you can check if your country supports EMD for Finnair.

Note: The ticket needs to be issued before or at the same time as the EMD-A, so that the EMD-A will get associated with the ticket.


The service is only available for Finnair flights

  • operated and marketed by AY
  • operated by BE and marketed by AY with a “*” mark in front of the AY flight number
  • with a customer holding a 105-ticket
  • With a customer holding a ticket issued on another stock a Light iEMD is issued, more information is available in EMD-instructions.

It is not possible to sell pre-paid extra baggage, if the passenger

  • is traveling with an AY codeshare flight operated by another carrier


If the route remains the same and the change is done in the same PNR:

  • Add earlier paid EMD manually to new booked PDBG with cryptic entry FHD 105-800012456/E7/P1. E7 stands for SSR line number.
  • In reissue cases the EMD will be disassociated from the ticket and status is D; Activate the EMD that has been disassociated. Basic entry for re-association: EWA/ASC/E1-2/TKT105-2411111111/E1-2 (first E1-2 = coupon numbers of the EMD, latter E1-2 = coupon numbers of the ticket).


Pre-paid extra baggage is non-refundable.
