Air France has different luggage allowances depending on your fare. If you need to bring additional luggage, you can pay for the bags. In some cases, upgrading your fare will be more cost-efficient, so it’s best to explore your options prior to booking.

Luggage Allowance on Air France

You are allowed a certain amount of luggage with the price of your base fare when you travel with Air France.

  • Economy: 1 bag (23kg)
  • Premium Economy: 2 bags (23kg each)
  • Business: 2 bags (32kg each)
  • First Class: 3 bags (32kg each)

You can pay for additional luggage if you need to bring more bags than your fare allows. This is in addition to your carry-on luggage and personal item. If your bag is overweight, you will be subject to a fee.

Be sure to weigh your bag prior to check-in to avoid these penalties. You can always shift items between bags to make the allowance fit within your luggage allotment. Unfortunately, each bag needs to be under. The weight cannot be distributed between bags.

You can pre-purchase additional bags online with Air France, but you cannot pre-pay for luggage that is oversized or overweight. They need to check it in themselves at the airport.


How much luggage you can bring with you on Air France depends on your fare. You can bring anywhere between one to three bags for free with you, in addition to your carry-on and personal items. Any additional bags or overweight luggage will be subject to an additional fee.
