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.”
