The airline has a straightforward baggage policy that outlines the airline's baggage requirements for passengers who seek to travel with the airline.

Checked Baggage Allowance

For instance, passengers traveling on the Business class will be allowed to carry up to two baggage pieces weighing a maximum weight of 40 kg in total while those in the Premium class will be allowed to bring along a bag weighing a total of 20kg. Those who choose to travel in the Basic class will pay baggage fees depending on the modes they use to book their flightS. If a passenger books their ticket via the official Air Baltic website, they pay baggage fees starting from 9.99 EUR. If they already have their ticket, passengers will pay 34.99 EUR in case they used 'Manage my booking' or if they choose to check in online. Tickets booked at independent travel agencies, or Air Baltic ticket offices will attract a fee of 35 EUR which is slightly lower than the 40 EUR they will be required to pay at the airport check-in desk. In situations where the cabin baggage exceeds the maximum weight and dimension restrictions, the passenger will be needed to part with a fee of 60 EUR. It is important to note that the dimensions allowed for all checked baggage are 100 x 50 x 80 cm.
