Air France-KLM baggage fee rises on European flights

Travel News 28 Apr 2016

Air France-KLM has increased the fee for check-in baggage on economy flights in Europe by €5.

The fee increase, which came in last month saw the charge per-one-way trip rising to €25 when purchased online and €35 when purchased at the airport.

Members of the carriers Flying Blue programme receive discounts on these charges, though in the case of the lowest tier level – Ivory, the discount has been reduced and applies only to KLM flights (not Air France flights).

The increase of the baggage fee does not apply to:

  • Flying Blue Elite and Elite Plus members, who will continue to benefit from a baggage allowance of 2 items of check-in baggage.
  • Passengers travelling on and/or transferring to KLM intercontinental flights, who can bring 1 suitcase of max. 23 kg free of charge.
  • Fully flexible tickets (booking class B, M or Y) within Europe.
  • European Economy Class tickets booked with Award Miles (award tickets).
  • Flights to and from Belarus, Georgia, Russia or Ukraine.
