A heavy and/or oversized bag charge applies to baggage that:
- weighs over 23kg (50lb) and up to 32kg (70lb)
- exceeds the standard baggage dimensions of 90cm x 75cm x 45cm (35in x 30in x 18in). The maximum allowed dimensions are 190cm x 75cm x 65cm (75in x 29.5in x 25.5in).
The heavy bag charge for bags up to 32kg does not apply if you travel with a Business Classic or Flex ticket type on Finnair long-haul flights (excluding infants, and tickets bought between 1 June 2023 and 10 December 2023). You can always check your baggage allowance from your ticket and Manage booking.
An additional heavy bag of up to 32kg can be bought in advance while making the booking or later in Manage booking. Otherwise, the heavy and/or oversized bag charge can only be paid at the airport.
Some special items, for example wheelchairs, certain sports equipment and large musical instruments exceeding the maximum measures may be accepted with a prior approval from the airline. All other baggage exceeding the maximum measures or weight (with the exception of pet containers) can only be transported as cargo.
Please keep in mind that your baggage should only include personal items you need during your trip. We cannot accept larger items, such as furniture, to be carried as checked baggage; they must be shipped as cargo.
