Flying Blue Explorers receive up to EUR 10 discount on the first item of additional check-in baggage if booked no later than 24 hours before departure and when travelling in Economy Class on flights operated by KLM or Air France worldwide.

Arranging extra items of baggage online on may not be possible if:
