I want to know my baggage allowance (adult, child, infant)
The weight and number of cabin and hold bags varies according to the airline, the destination and the options linked to the price of your flight. Therefore, please check directly with the airline you're travelling with. If you're taking more than one flight with different airlines, check with each one.
You can view the details of your baggage allowance on the flight results page. You can also add extra baggage online.
● Cabin baggage:
As a general rule, the baggage allowance is 5 kg/person. 1 bag whose dimensions do not exceed 55x35x25 cm.
Important: For babies who are not entitled to a baggage allowance, a small bag with the necessary items for the journey will be permitted. Please visit the website of the Civil Aviation Department (DGAC), and download the document on restrictions on liquids in cabin baggage.
● Hold baggage:
Depending on the airline, the baggage allowance may be expressed:
- in kilos (e.g. 23 kg) that you can spread over several bags.
- in number of bags (generally 23 kg each).
The baggage allowance is listed on the e-ticket.
For low-cost airlines: In general, they allow only one standard cabin bag of 55x40x20 cm (including handles and wheels). Backpacks and laptops count as an item of hand luggage, so no other bags will be allowed in the cabin. The maximum weight is often reduced to 7 kg.
Articles covered under European Union regulations on dangerous materials, in particular explosive, flammable, corrosive, oxidising, irritating, toxic and radioactive materials and compressed gases, as well as items not authorised by individual states, are prohibited in luggage.
Please note: Airports in Paris have recently implemented a new checked baggage policy. The famous, ultra-light, often red and brown bags commonly known as ‘Tati bags’ are now prohibited in checked baggage.
