I travel with KLM airlines and I need to know about the new baggage policy.

KLM has reviewed the checked baggage policy for Flying Blue Ivory members travelling within Europe on a KLM Economy class ticket.

For any journey on/after 01 October 2014 the first bag can be checked-in for free as long as the ticket is issued before 01 October 2014 for all Flying Blue Ivory members.
For this group the baggage policy will be revised for tickets issued and travel on/after 1st of October.

For tickets issued and travel on/after 1st of October, all Flying Blue Ivory members will receive a 50% discount on the price or Miles amount of the first checked bag.

The fee is 50% of the price of the first check-in bag. 
  • For off-airport (prepaid) this fee will be EUR 7,50 or (1,500 Miles)
