Check with Air Algérie prior to your departure to see whether you’ll be able to utilize online check-in for your flight.
For passengers that are able to use Air Algérie’s online check-in, passengers are able to check-in between 24 hours and up to 3 hours prior to their flights. Passengers will be able to make seat selections at this time and will need to print out their check-in receipt (access to a printer is required).

Additional seating fees may apply.
Baggage Allowance and Fees
With Air Algérie flights, each passenger has a fair baggage allowance, regardless of their ticketing class. Each passenger is entitled to one handbag with a maximum of 10kg in weight (5kg for smaller, ATR planes) which includes personal items, such as purses or laptops. Your personal items must be able to fit in your hand baggage in order for you to be seated. For passengers flying in ATR planes, the maximum handbag dimensions are 40 x 30 x 20cm and a maximum weight of 5kg. For other flights, the maximum weight is 10kg and maximum dimensions are 55 x 35 x 25cm.
On Air Algérie flights, your baggage allowance is determined by your ticketing class as well as the size of the aircraft you will be traveling on. Baggage for Air Algérie domestic flights is judged by weight instead of by piece (with baggage entitlement ranging from 20kg for Economy class, 30kg for Business class, and 40kg for First Class). For some intercontinental and European flights, baggage allowance for Economy class is 30kg with Business and First class both being entitled a maximum of 40kg.

Excess baggage fees depend on the final destination of your flight but range in price, starting at $6 USD. Passengers are able to calculate both their baggage allowance and their excess baggage fees by consulting Air Algérie’s online baggage calculator prior to their flight. The maximum weight for one piece of luggage is 32kg. Any bags over this weight restriction will have to be repacked or dispersed throughout several bags.
