  • Excess baggage fees are non-refundable.
  • Heavy bags can only be paid for at the airport.
  • Extra bags for connecting flights with other airlines must be purchased at the airport.
  • When traveling with a Stopover in Iceland, excess baggage fees are applied per flight leg.
  • A maximum of three additional checked bags may be purchased in advance with the discount applied. If you wish to travel with more checked bags (the maximum per passenger is 10 checked bags), they must be purchased at the airport at full price.
