Extra allowance for Finnair Plus and oneworld members

Finnair Plus Platinum and Gold 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 may take a set of golf, ski or diving equipment on flights operated and marketed by Finnair.

Baggage allowance on other airlines' flights

Baggage allowances and regulations may vary depending on the airline. 

If your ticket includes flights operated by other airlines, IATA standards of the Most Significant Marketing Carrier (MSMC) define which airline’s baggage regulations apply for your journey. If the geographically longest or most significant flight of your journey is not marketed by Finnair, but by another airline, this airline’s rules also apply to Finnair flights. 

Your baggage allowance is always shown on your ticket. Please contact the operating airline for more information.

Large and heavy baggage

heavy bag charge applies to baggage that weighs 23–32 kg (50–70 lb) and/or has maximum dimensions of 190 cm x 75 cm x 65 cm (75 in x 29.5 in x 25.5 in).

The heavy bag charge can only be paid at the airport. The charge is not collected from Business Class passengers or Finnair Plus Platinum or oneworld Emerald members. 

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.

Need more bags?

If you'd like to take more bags than what is included in your checked baggage allowance, an extra bag charge will be collected. 

When all the flights in your itinerary are operated by Finnair, you can pay in advance for up to three additional bags or sports equipment within the measures and weight of a standard bag.

When you pay the fee online, it'll cost you less than at the airport.
