Free baggage allowance


All the passenger baggage, including carry-on baggage must be presented at check-in, which is caused by the requirements of air traffic control.

Dear passengers, please note that the free baggage allowance depends on the direction of flight and class of service.

Passenger’s baggage received by airline for transportation under own responsibility for its safety, labeled by the luggage tag and transported in the aircraft’s luggage compartment is supposed to be called the checked in baggage

We recommend to attach a personalized tag, pointing your name in Latin letters, flight number, date and phone number to every piece of luggage. Personalized tags can be obtained when purchasing the ticket or at the front desk at the airport.

In April 2011 Aeroflot has introduced a new simplified definition of the free baggage allowance based on the pieces of the system on all its routes. Piece concept is graded according to class, and / or type of the applied tariff.
