Payment options for extra baggage
You can pay for your extra baggage when you check in via our online check-in that opens 22 hours before departure or at the airport upon departure.
When checking-in online, the passenger receives detailed information about free baggage allowance, which is based on booking class and frequent flyer tier level. The passenger can then add extra pieces of checked baggage and pay the excess charges already at this time by inserting the credit card information in the check-in dialogue.
Payment at SAS Self Service Kiosk
The SAS Self Service Kiosks are now also equipped with credit card payment devices.
In Finland these kiosks are available at Tampere, Turku, Vaasa, Oulu and Kuopio airports (i.e. not in Helsinki).
Hence, at SAS Self Service Kiosks passengers can now not only check-in, but also add extra pieces of baggage and pay the excess charges. SAS Self Service Kiosks issue baggage tags only for baggage included in the total free baggage allowance and for excess baggage already paid for. SAS Kiosks also support passengers traveling with snow ski equipment.
Our new check-in functionalities can also be used by disabled passengers traveling with a wheelchair, as a baggage tag must be issued for the wheelchair even though the wheelchair is never charged for.
Common Use Self Service Kiosks CUSS
Common Use Self Service Kiosks (CUSS), for example those available at Helsinki Airport, do not handle payment of excess baggage.
If passenger checks-in baggage exceeding his/her free baggage allowance at a CUSS kiosk, the passenger receives baggage tags for all pieces. Information about the extra number of excess baggage pieces is sent to the Baggage Drop, so that the agent can clearly see how many pieces shall be charged for.
