KLM Oversize/Overweight Baggage Fees 2016 ↑ Back to Top

Excess/Oversize/Overweight Summary

You will be charged excess baggage fees if you exceed the amount allowed for your ticket (typically 1 bag of 23kg). The cost for the excess baggage depends on the origin and destination of your flight, which KLM splits into 4 different "Zones". A flat fee for excess baggage is set for each "Zone".

If you know that you will be exceeding your free baggage allowance, we recommend that you go to the KLM website to pay for your extra baggage before arriving at the airport. The cost when paying online is about 20% less than the fees that will be charged at the airport.
