Baggage Allowance

 

Due to flight safety regulations, all baggage carried by passengers, including hand luggage, must be presented at check-in.

Dear passengers, please note that baggage allowance depends on flight destination and service class.

Checked baggage refers to a passenger’s baggage, which the airline carries under its own responsibility, marked with a baggage tag and transported in the baggage compartment of the aircraft.
We advise you to attach a personalized tag, indicating your name (in Latin letters), flight number, date and phone number to each piece of baggage. Personalized tags are available when purchasing the ticket or at the airport check-in desk.
Aeroflot applies a simplified scheme for determining baggage allowance based on the Piece Concept. The Piece Concept differs depending on the service class and/or the type of fare.
