The information below is intended for reference purposes and only applies to flights provided by Air France and HOP!. Are you taking a flight provided by one of our partners? We recommend checking the airline's website for further information, as their baggage rules may be different.

If the baggage rules vary within the same trip, we recommend that you adhere to the most restrictive conditions.

How many baggage items?

The total number and size of hand baggage items you can bring depends on your travel cabin. Our calculator indicates exactly how many baggage items you can bring on your trip.
You can take 1 or 2 hand baggage items depending on your flight cabin, as well as 1 accessory. Need more details? Use our baggage calculator to find out exactly how much baggage you're allowed on your trip.
