Rules limit what you can carry in your hand luggage (checked luggage is unaffected) when departing
from EU airports. More stringent controls are in effect. This is especially important if travelling from
countries where more weight might be allowed.
“Liquids” cover gels, semi-solid materials (mascara among other items), lotions and the contents of pressurized containers such as: toothpaste, hair gel, drinks, soups, syrups, perfumes, shaving foam, aerosols and all other articles of similar consistency.
They must then be packed in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag(20 cm x 20 cm = about 8″ x 8″) like freezer bags.
Medicine and baby foods would be exempt as would drinks and perfumes bought at airport shops before boarding.
The new rules also specify that laptops and “other large electrical devices”, including radios and video cameras, will have to be taken out of your carry-on bags and screened separately. Jackets and coats will also have to be removed.
larger quantities of liquids can still be carried in checked-in luggage.
It would be wise to arrive early for flights :
Individual items may be no heavier than 32 kg each.
You need to inform your Airline when booking your ticket if you intend to travel with sports items such as surf boards or bikes.
The size of your baggage allowance depends on the product purchased and your destination. It is specified on your ticket or on your travel memo.
Air France’s maximum liability is SDR1.000 (approx, USD 1450) per passenger. The ceiling may be raised if you declared the exact value of your baggage and paid the additional fee before the latest check-in time.
Size limit on hand luggage : 56cm x 45cm x 25cm (approximately 22×17.7×10 inches).
In addition to the hold baggage you check in, you are entitled to take one item of hand baggage + one personal item (eg. laptop, handbag/purse, camera) into the cabin provided they weigh no more than 12 kg.
For passengers traveling in l’Espace Premiere or l’Espace Affaires, two carry-on bags are allowed (including a garment bag provided they weigh no more than 18 kg in all.
126 cm (including wheels and handles)
* Maximum allowable dimensions (Length + width + height) : 126cm
It is advisable to keep any fragile items (china, bottles, paintings, computer equipment, etc.) or any valuables (money, identity papers, jewelry, cameras, medication, etc.) with you in the cabin.
The lack of available space aboard means that stricter limits may be placed on the number of items of carry-on baggage allowed in the cabin. Similarly, if your baggage is too heavy or bulky it may not be allowed in the cabin and will be placed in the baggage hold instead.
Some governmental authorities may impose different rules for carry-on baggage. On flights from the USA, only on item of hand baggage and one personal item are permitted.
*(list not exhaustive… consult your regular travel agent for details))
Gas, flammable liquids, explosives, corrosive and radio-active substances, magnetized objects, poisons, matches and lighters (selected destinations only) must never be in your possession or packed in your baggage.
