Baggage service

Air Algérie tickets and registration desks provide baggage stickers for the passengers. They are asked to fill in these stickers with their personal information, and attach them both on the inside and the outside of their luggage.

An important aspect to be taken into account is that, before embarking on the plane, passengers are supposed to identify their luggage on-site, by the plane. The baggage that is not claimed by their owner will not be carried on the plane!

If your baggage is lost, contact Air Algerie Baggage Service before leaving the arrival airport, providing the baggage receipt that was provided to you at check-in. Missing objects from your baggage must be declared within 3 days after the flight.
