Oversized baggage

Oversized baggage can be accepted with prior agreement of the airline. Request must be made online at least 72h before flight departure.

A fee of  100€ / $110 per item per journey is charged for carrying oversized equipment, subject to a weight limit of 32 kg per item. This rate applies to all XL Airways mid-haul and long-haul flights.

Excess baggage

Your baggage allowance is calculated on the basis of the piece concept, which determines the number of baggage items permitted per passenger. If you exceed the maximum number of items or the maximum permissible weight per item, you must pay a surcharge.

  • If you wish to travel with an additional item of luggage, you will be charged a fee of  100€ / $110 at the airport. Useful to know: you can also reserve extra baggage items when you purchase your ticket, or at any time up to 24 hours before the scheduled departure of your flight from My booking page. This will save you 30€ / $33 compared to paying at the airport.
  • If your baggage exceeds the maximum weight per item (20 kg, or 23 kg on flights from/to French overseas departments (DOM)), you will be asked to pay a surcharge of  10€ / $11 per additional kilogram.

Under the current regulations, each baggage item (including excess) must weigh no more than 32 kg. Items weighing more than this will not be accepted.
The total weight of excess baggage must not exceed 100 kg per passenger, however many items of baggage the passenger is travelling with.
