New rules for free baggage allowance

Dear members!

We are glad to inform you that from August 1st, 2011 Aeroflot introduced the new updated rules for free baggage allowance.

These changes concern Business class passengers and excess baggage.

  • The new Piece Concept will be valid for any tickets issued since the 1st of August, 2011. More information about Piece Concept valid for tickets issued during the period from 01.04.2011 till 31.07.2011 you can find here.
  • New Piece Concept is differentiated depending on a destination, travel class and/or a fare.
  • The old weight concept rules and excess baggage charges are valid for tickets issued before 31.03.2011.

The following norms for free baggage allowance (FBA) are set:

The basic rule

 Service class
 Free Baggage Allowance (FBA)
Economy class (fare groups Optimum, Freeze, Promo**) 1 PC*
Economy class (fare group Status) 2 PC*
Business class 2 PC*

*Measurements of one piece of luggage depend on service class

One piece for Business class = 32 kg. max with overall dimension not exceeding 158 cm.

One piece for Economy class = 23 kg. max with overall dimension not exceeding 158 cm.

**including Aeroflot Bonus Award tickets.

For Silver/Elite and Gold/Elite Plus members of Aeroflot Bonus or other SkyTeam alliance members frequent flyer programmes 1 free piece of luggage is provided in addition to the usual luggage allowance according to the service class.

This privilege is provided only if Aeroflot operates the flight. On flights operated by other SkyTeam members, additional free baggage allowance norms are set by the airline operating the flight.

If you travel on the same flight with a group of 2 or more people (family members, persons travelling together or travelling on business) for the same purpose and to the same destination, you are allowed to sum up pieces of luggage of each of the passengers (not applied for carry-on weapons and ammunition). The norm for luggage carriage is the number of pieces (combining weights of separate pieces of baggage is not allowed).

We pay your attention that combining weights of different pieces of baggage is not allowed. You can find out more about Piece Concept system here

Best regards,

Aeroflot Bonus
