Extra baggage

Page latest updated:

Any baggage carried in addition to the free checked baggage allowance may be subject to an extra bag fee. Travel agencies can charge the fee with EMD-A as a prepaid extra bag element, e.g. SR PDBG. 

An additional heavy bag of up to 32kg can be bought via NDC channels, Finnair Customer Care or in Manage booking.  

If travelling with an additional bag that is both heavy and oversized, customer can purchase it via our customer care. Otherwise, the heavy and/or oversized bag charge can be paid at the airport. The charges are for flights in one direction. If the item is just oversized, the oversized bag fee is collected at the airport.  

Maximum size for one piece: Larger items up to 190cm x 75cm x 65cm (75in x 29.5in x 25.5in) can be carried by paying an oversized bag charge at the airport. If the item is both oversized and between 23-32 kg, both heavy and oversized bag fees will be collected.  Some special items (for example larger SPEQ items) and large musical instruments, exceeding the maximum measures may be accepted, but prior approval from the carrier is required.

In case special baggage exceed the maximum dimensions (190 cm x 75 cm x 65 cm), a prior approval is needed from the airline. A fixed rate will be collected at the airport. Please see prices at Finnair.com. For more information please see Special Baggage pages

Maximum number of bags: Customers may take up to 10 additional bags with the same weight and size restrictions as their baggage allowance.

Pre-paid additional baggage

When Finnair operates all the flights in the itinerary, and the flight number starts with AY and the ticket number with 105, you can pay in advance for up to eight additional pieces of baggage or sports equipment within the standard measurements. Bicycles are considered special baggage and separate fixed charges apply. More info on bikes is available on Sports equipment page. Extra bags can be purchased up until 3 hours before departure. Fares are available in GDS and at Finnair.com.

Charges at the airport when other carriers in the same ticket

If the ticket includes flights from other airlines, IATA standards of the Most Significant Marketing Carrier (MSMC) define which airline’s baggage regulations apply to those flights. Extra baggage fees are defined by the airline that is carrying out the check-in. If possible, the extra bag charges are calculated according to the Most Significant Marketing Carrier’s extra bag charges.
