Rules for Baggage Allowance


All baggage carried by passengers, including hand luggage, must be presented at check-in as prescribed by security requirements.

Passenger baggage accepted for carriage by the airline and secured under its responsibility must be labelled with a tag and transported in the baggage compartment of the aircraft; it is referred to as checked baggage.

Aeroflot applies the piece concept system for checked baggage on all own flights (according to the number of seats). The piece concept system is differentiated depending on the service class and/or type of applied fare.
