Prepare your hand or checked baggage for your Air France flight

Travel ready. Get the answers to your baggage questions right here.

Important: soft plastic bags and bags wrapped in rudimentary materials (e.g., household stretch film) are not accepted. This type of packaging damages airport facilities and disrupts the flow of baggage.

Travel light

By packing lighter bags, you are helping us limit CO2 emissions.


Protect your bags

Certain baggage in the hold, such as strollers or backpacks, can get stuck in automated airport infrastructures if they are not correctly packaged. This may result in damage or delays. We recommend that you protect your bags with reusable covers, usually provided with their purchase, instead of disposable packaging.


And don’t forget: at the airport, if you see something, say something.

  • Don’t leave your baggage unattended
  • Don’t give your baggage to someone else
  • Don’t accept someone else’s baggage

You may incur fines and be barred from flying. The Air France remains at your disposal should you have any questions.
