Can I carry an urn?

You can transport a funerary urn in the cabin or hold.
  • In the cabin:
    - Cabin baggage must not exceed 55 cm x 35 cm x 25 cm / 21 in x 13 in x 9 in.
  • In the cabin and in the hold:
    - The urn must be sealed and packed in a container that does not allow other passengers to identify it as such,
    - You must be in possession of a certificate from the crematorium, in order to avoid having the urn opened by security services.

No authorization is required to transport an urn within metropolitan France or to and from France's overseas territories. However, you are required to have transport authorization issued by the local prefecture where the cremation was performed if you plan to travel outside of France or France’s overseas territories.

For international travel, you are required to have transport authorization issued by local authorities or the French consulate.
