Fly with excess or overweight baggage


  • You can now purchase excess baggage when you check in online.
    Terms and conditions for prepaid extra baggage

  • Skis, bikes, golf bags & fishing equipment are exempted from the maximum dimensions of 158 cm/62". The rates for these are the same as those for an extra piece of baggage and can be paid during online check-in.


  • Pay for excess bagage (if you have not purchased it while checking in online) at a SAS Self Service kiosk (in Scandinavia) by credit card. If a SAS Self Service kiosk is not available, pay at the bag drop.


  • If you are traveling with excess baggage or your baggage exceeds weight/dimension limits, you will pay a fixed price per piece of baggage. Consult the price list below. Prices are one way* and apply when you travel with SAS. If you are traveling onward with another airline, other rules may apply.

    *A one-way trip includes flight connections with SAS and Widerøe. For example, if you are traveling from Umeå-Stockholm-London, you only pay once.
