Allowed baggage and buying extra baggage
Sometimes extra baggage may be needed when travelling with a family. You can purchase extra baggage in advance in Manage booking or in the Finnair App.
Children’s tickets include the same baggage allowance for checked baggage as adults in the same travel class. Infants (0–2 years old) have no carry-on allowance but can have one piece of checked baggage when travelling with the Classic or Flex ticket type. Please note the Superlight and Light ticket type has no checked baggage allowance. Regardless of travel class, checked baggage for infants has a maximum weight of 23kg (50lb). In addition, children and infants are always allowed to have a foldable pushchair and safety seat, even when travelling with an Economy Superlight and Light ticket that does not include checked baggage.
Larger pushchairs are carried as checked baggage free of charge. If your pushchair can be disassembled, you should separate it into two parts. Please pack each part in plastic bags or some other form of protection. There are thin plastic bags to protect your baby’s pushchair available at the check-in desk at Helsinki Airport.
The carry-on baggage allowance is the same for children’s tickets as it is for adults’ tickets. However, infants without a reserved seat do not have their own carry-on baggage allowance, except for a foldable pushchair and a safety seat. You may also bring enough baby milk and baby food into the cabin for the whole journey.
A foldable pushchair can be brought into the cabin if it doesn’t exceed the size and weight limits for carry-on baggage. It is then considered as part of the carry-on allowance. In this case, the pushchair is counted as one carry-on bag and in addition to it, you may bring a small bag (handbag or small laptop bag) into the cabin, which should be placed under the seat in front of you. In case your ticket type is Superlight, you need to purchase a carry-on bag for the pushchair. However, for infants, it is free of charge to bring the pushchair regardless of your ticket type.
