Overweight Baggage Fees

Weight Concept

The excess-baggage fees listed below apply to passengers who have a ticket bearing a Finnair flight number and who are travelling on a Finnair-operated scheduled flight within Finland, Europe, or Asia. In other cases, the excess-baggage fee per kg is 1.5% of the highest published fare of an economy class ticket, regardless of travel class (1% on flights to and from Australia and New Zealand). The fee for special baggage can be paid before check-in at the ticket office at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport. At other airports passengers should proceed to check-in for further information.

  • Flights within Finland; Stockholm, Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius, St.Petersburg: €5 per kg each way
  • Flights within rest of Europe: €10 per kg each way
  • Flights within Europe-Asia/Asia-Europe: €30 per kg each way

Piece Concept

On flights to the United States and Canada, the piece concept applies. The excess-baggage fee is $90 or $110, depending on the destination. The charge for one piece of baggage may be double or triple, depending on the weight and size of the bag.
