Air France and KLM are extending rules for check-in baggage – which already apply to passengers flying from Europe to the US and Canada – to the rest of the network from March 28, 2010.
Previously, two different rules existed depending on the destination (piece concept or weight concept). From now on, only the piece concept will be used for all tickets issued from the said date.
These new measures, more beneficial for customers than before, will enable Air France and KLM passengers to check in up to three bags free of charge, weighing up to 23kg each depending on the cabin class.
Flying Blue members from Silver status will be able to check in an additional bag of up to 23kg, whatever their travel class. Up to now, they benefited from an additional baggage allowance only on routes on which the weight concept applied (Silver 5kg, Gold 10kg and Platinum 20kg).
