As your Air France trip gets closer, you may realize that you will need an additional checked bag. You can add this bag before your trip online or in the app, or in the airport. Here’s how.

Adding Baggage

Depending on the fare you book, you get a set amount of checked bags for free. This could be anywhere between one to three bags, though light fare economy actually has no checked bags for free. If you need additional checked bags, you can purchase them for an additional fee.

How much depends on your fare, the type of bag, its weight, and more. If you have oversized luggage, make sure you call in advance to make sure there is room on the flight for it in the cargo hold.

To add additional luggage to your reservation after booking, simply navigate to Air France on your app or browser. Locate your booking and add luggage online. If you pre-purchase your bags, you will get a 20 percent discount, though keep in mind they will still need to weigh the bag at the airport. If it’s overweight, you will need to pay an additional fee.

Upgrading your Fare

Sometimes, it may be more cost-efficient to upgrade your fare rather than pay for multiple additional bags, so make sure to check if this is a better option for you.


You can add baggage with Air France after booking your flight. It is quick and easy to do yourself online or at the airport.
