Air France Cabin Baggage

Your cabin baggage allowance is determined by your travel cabin. Passengers are permitted to carry onboard one or two cabin baggage items, depending on the travel cabin, as well as one accessory, such as a handbag, a briefcase, or a small bag for a notebook computer. Your travel cabin is shown on your booking and on your ticket.

Your cabin baggage must not exceed 55cm x 35cm x 25cm. Your accessory must not exceed 40cm x 30cm x 15cm. The total combined weight of your cabin baggage and accessory must not exceed 12kg if you are travelling economy or 18kg if you are travelling business class.

Additional items you may take on board the cabin:
  • Jacket, coat or other clothes you are wearing
  • Umbrella
  • Duty-free items purchased on your flight or at the airport
  • Accessories for children such as a collapsible stroller*, car seat, diaper bag (see the Family and children section of the website)
  • Medical equipment (collapsible wheelchair*, crutches, etc).

Please note:

  • Garment bags and “Yoyo” strollers are considered a standard hand baggage item, not an accessory.
  • For safety reasons, any equipment designed for children to sleep horizontally (convertible bag that serves as a bed, inflatable mattress placed in front of the seat, etc.) are not permitted onboard Air France aircraft.

What if I want to transport my pet in the cabin? You can view information regarding transport rules for pets at Air France’s website here

Air France Sports Equipment and Special Baggage

Air France permits a wide range of sporting equipment, musical instruments and other exceptional items on flights. Special baggage under the standard checked baggage allowance can be considered as such and can be transported in the hold. However, items that exceed these restrictions may require permission from Air France customer service.

Some musical instruments can even be transported as cabin baggage if an additional seat is purchased on the flight. Prior approval from Air France customer service is required, and the weight per seat must not exceed 46kg. Or, instruments can be checked for a fee.

My Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative

It’s no doubt that carrying baggage with you on your Air France flight is an easy, cost-effective option, so long as you are travelling with a small amount of luggage. However, if you happen to exceed the weight allowance or size restrictions, or if you need to add an extra bag to your flight, you could face considerable extra excess baggage charges.

My Baggage provides a great, low-cost alternative to carrying bags on your flight. We offer fast and convenient international luggage shipping services, which allow you to travel hands-free. It means you’ll save yourself some time at the airport – you won’t have any bags to check-in, you won’t have to wait around at the luggage carousels at your destination and ultimately, it’ll be one less thing to worry about whilst you travel.

My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 30kg/66lbs suitcase at fantastic low rates. You can get a free instant quote online to see exactly how cost-effective our service can be. You’ll also have the option to pay extra for even heavier bags if you need to, and you can add as many items as you like to your booking. Shipping your luggage ahead allows you to bring more with you than if you were simply relying on a few pieces of checked baggage.

Simply book online and My Baggage will collect your luggage and deliver it quickly and safely to where it needs to go. As well as providing a reliable door to door service, My Baggage offers luggage tracking, SMS and email notifications the entire way through. We ship to over 200 countries worldwide, across over 1000 routes. What are you waiting for?

You Need A Crystal Ball

After a long email exchange, where Mark did a stellar job feigning sincerity and frustration at my less-than-satisfactory experience. Apparently, you need a crystal ball when the live tracking is disconnected at the point when the item was supposed to be delivered. You're supposed to know instinctively to wait until 7pm. Which is a full 75 mins after it was supposed to be delivered. For those like me who don't know, the time slot is only guidance. After an email exchange, it would appear I have no right to be annoyed at this experience because the package did arrive on the date it was supposed to. It doesn't matter that there was a major inconvenience because it arrived at 7pm. Other than that, the service was reasonably priced, package wasn't damaged and I felt sorry for the working conditions fo the driver!

The company delivered my stuff in good shape and to my surprise, they had all the baggage delivered quite earlier than the expected date. I was moving from Glasgow to London and my baggage really made the process very smooth and would recommend it to others as well who are in the same situation as I was.

Excellent service

Excellent service, collected promptly and delivered as specified. This service was used to collect my Mum’s suitcase instead of taking it on her flight with Ryanair as it worked out to be cheaper. Will definitely use again.
