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.
