Air France now offers its customers the option of dropping off and checking in their baggage at locations in Paris and in the Paris region, prior to arriving at the airport. This service allows passengers to travel light and with greater peace of mind, without having to worry about their bags, which they collect once they have arrived at their destination.

This optional service is made possible by a start-up company called Alltheway and at launch is available in eight locations. Five locations are hotels located in the city centre offer this service – namely Novotel Tour Eiffel, Mercure Tour Eiffel, Novotel Les Halles, Mercure Montparnasse and Pullman Bercy. Baggage drop-off is also available at the main exhibition sites for major trade fairs such as Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, Villepinte Exhibition Centre and the Palais des Congrès convention centre. More baggage drop-off points will soon be available in Paris according to the airline.

Alltheway takes charge of customers’ baggage and delivers them directly to the airline’s check-in desk at the airport. The baggage undergoes rigorous security checks at every stage of the process before being loaded onto the customer’s flight. From the airline’s app, customers will be able to track their baggage to the airport and subsequently to their destination using the “follow my bag” tool.

The service is available from 30 hours up to four hours before the flight’s departure, depending on the baggage drop-off location, and costs 25 euros for one bag, then 10 euros per additional bag. It is available on all flights operated by Air France on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle. The company also wishes to develop this offer for flights departing from Paris-Orly. It is also working on a baggage check-in from home and baggage pick-up and delivery option to an address in Paris and the Paris region.
