Additional Details from Finnair
Sports equipment is considered a standard bag if it weighs no more than 23kg (50lb) and its external dimensions (length + width + height) are no bigger than 158cm (62in). Some exceptions apply to golf bags, hockey and skiing equipment, and surfboards, but if your equipment exceeds the standard measurements, you can take it with you for an extra charge.
Hockey sticks are counted as a separate piece of baggage when carried separately, so your hockey equipment would be checked in as two pieces of baggage (hockey bag + sticks). If you have multiple sticks, they can be taped together and counted as one piece of baggage.
You may not tie hockey sticks with a strap or tape to the outside of the equipment bag. If a hockey stick does not fit inside the baggage, it will be considered extra baggage, and an extra bag charge applies.
Finnair will charge an extra baggage fee if you need more bags than are included in your checked baggage allowance.
Because we are traveling with Finnair only, you may pay in advance for up to three additional bags or sports equipment within the measures and weight of a standard bag.
When you pay the fee online in advance, it will cost you less than at the airport.
You can read more about extra baggage fees on the Finnair website.
A “heavy bag charge” applies to baggage that weighs 23–32kg (50–70lb) and/or has maximum dimensions of 190cm x 75cm x 65cm (75in x 29.5in x 25.5in). You can only pay thIs heavy bag charge at the airport.
Some special items, for example, wheelchairs exceeding the maximum measures, may be accepted with prior approval from the airline. All other baggage exceeding the maximum measures or weight (except for pet containers) can only be transported as cargo.
