Paris Orly airport: Your luggage



Have you lost a personal belonging or a piece of luggage when passing through Orly Airport ? Check this page for info



What can I take with me? What weight limits apply to cabin or checked bags? Everything you need to know so that your personal property can travel safely.



Your cabin bags
 You can take hand luggage on board with you:
 Maximum weight: 5 kg
 Maximum dimensions: 115 cm (total of three dimensions L + W + H)



Your checked bags
 The maximum weight of the luggage you can check in depends on the airline you are flying with:
 generally a weight limit of 23 kg applies in economy class and 30 to 40 kg in first class,
 above this weight, an excess baggage charge will apply.
 If you need to carry fragile items (bicycles, musical instruments…), contact your airline ahead of time.
 Large items cannot be carried even as checked bags, they must be shipped as freight.

Checking your bags in
 Be sure to check in before the check in time limit shown on your ticket! The terminal that you leave from is also shown on your ticket.
 At the check in counter, be sure to place any items not allowed in hand baggage in your checked luggage[lien paragraphe « Les objets interdits en cabine » en bas de page]. If any such items are found during the security inspections, they will be destroyed.
