Since March, airBalticpassengers can purchase additional weight of four kilograms for their free cabin baggage allowance for a price starting at EUR 9.99. By using the service, the total cabin bag allowance can reach a total weight of up to 12 kilograms. 

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “Heavy cabin cabbage is an innovative service and we see that it is continuing to grow in popularity. So far, the service has been growing by around 10% every week in volume terms, showing that our passengers appreciate the product. The service addresses those passengers, who need more than eight kilograms.”

All Economy class passengers of airBalticare still allowed to carry on board one cabin bag (55x40x23 cm) and one personal item (30x40x10 cm) with a total weight of eight kilograms free or charge.
