Air France Surfboards Policy

Surfboards, kite surfboards, bodyboards, windsurf boards and longboards can be transported in the hold. Prior approval from our customer service department is required. You must submit your request at least 48 hours before your flight's departure.
Depending on the size of the board and your travel dates, the following rules apply.
For flights departing on or before March 27, 2016
If your board is less than 300 cm / 118 inches in length and under 23 kg / 50 lb in weight, it is considered a standard checked baggage item and is included at no extra charge in your baggage allowance (except for Economy Mini and Basic fare tickets). However, if you want to transport more baggage items or if you exceed the baggage allowance for your ticket, you can purchase a Baggage Option online or pay a fee for this option at the airport.
For more information, please see the Baggage user guide page.
