airBaltic Sees Strong Demand for Heavy Cabin Baggage
Since the introduction of the service by airBaltic in March, more than 100 000 bookings for the heavy cabin baggage have been made by the airline’s passengers. 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 airBaltic are 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. In case a passenger purchases extra cabin baggage weight, the cabin bag still may not exceed 55x40x23 cm dimensions. The service is available only on flights operated by airBaltic.
It is possible to purchase the service on company’s website up until an hour before the departureas well as by contacting our call centre or travel agencies. At the airport, the passenger must be able to provide a booking confirmation or invoice if requested by the gate agent.
