Baggage benefits for Finnair Plus members

In connection with the overall baggage allowance changes, we have made changes to Finnair Plus members’ baggage benefits.

Complimentary carry-on bag

Finnair Plus Silver, Gold, Platinum and Platinum Lumo members can take one complimentary carry-on bag (55cm x 40cm x 23cm) on short-haul flights when travelling with an Economy Superlight ticket that otherwise would only include a small bag. This applies to bookings made on or after 1 June 2023.

What is Economy Superlight?

A new Superlight ticket type replaces the Economy Light on short-haul flights (flights within Europe) for tickets purchased from 1 June. Superlight includes one small bag that is placed under the seat (40cm x 30cm x 15cm) and nothing extra. Read more about Superlight.

Finnair Plus tier benefits also apply when you travel with an Economy Superlight ticket.

50% discount on extra bag for Silver members

As of 1 June 2023, Finnair Plus Silver members no longer have an extra checked bag of 23kg as a tier benefit but can purchase it with a 50% discount. The discount applies to all bookings regardless of the booking date.

The discount only applies to purchases made through Finnair digital channels or customer service for Finnair operated and marketed flights. The discount is not available for purchases at the airport.

If you have booked your flight before 1 June 2023 and you are a Silver member at the time of travel, you are still entitled to one extra bag free of charge.

Here are some examples:

  • If you have booked your flight before 1 June 2023 for October 2023 and are on Silver tier at the time of travel, you are entitled to one extra checked bag free of charge. You can also purchase extra bag with a 50% discount.
  • If you have booked your flight on or after 1 June 2023 for October 2023 and are on Silver tier at the time of travel, you will be entitled to a 50% discount on extra bag.
  • If you have booked your flight before 1 June 2023 for October 2023 and have moved to Basic tier by the time of travel, you will not be entitled to additional benefits such as an extra bag or a 50% discount.

No complimentary sports equipment for Gold members

Finnair Plus Gold members no longer have complimentary sports equipment, such as skis or a golf bag, included in their tier benefits when flying on or after 1 June 2023. However, you can always purchase all special baggage as a travel extra.

You can purchase bags and other travel extras when booking your tickets or later in Manage booking or Finnair mobile app.

Heavy bag charge for Platinum and Platinum Lumo members

Finnair Plus Platinum and Platinum Lumo members can no longer take heavy or oversized bags with them free of charge. If your bag weighs 23–32kg or exceeds the standard size of 90cm x 75cm x 45cm, you will need to pay a heavy or oversized bag charge. This change applies to bookings made on or after 1 June 2023.

If you have booked your flight before 1 June 2023 and you are a Platinum or Platinum Lumo member at the time of travel, you are still entitled to take heavy or oversized bags with you free of charge.
