Baggage hall

English: Baggage hall

French: Salle à bagages

If you’re checking a cabin bag to the baggage hall of the passenger’s final destination, you should tell them that they’ll retrieve their bag there, with the other checked bags (and not beside the airplane at the gate upon arrival.)

Salle (f)=Room, hall

À=At, to, in (in this context, its meaning is closer to “for”)

Bagages (m,pl)=Baggage

Note that "bagages" in French is usually used in the plural.

In our Canadian French for Flight Attendants audio course, we tell passengers that they can get their bags at the “carousel”, meaning the baggage carousel in the baggage hall. It’s a bit easier for learners as the French word for carousel is very similar: carrousel (m).


Module 3 of Canadian French for Flight Attendants is available. Learn the French that flight attendants commonly use on the job: greet passengers, stow bags, drink and meal orders, duty-free service, seat changes, wheelchair requests, weather announcements and much more!
