Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic: “This is a significant step in our strategy of improving overall customer experience. We are introducing an all-Airbus A220-300 fleet, known for its improved travel experience, and the decision to increase hand luggage size complements that.”
airBaltic has 21 codeshare partners, allowing passengers to conveniently travel to almost any destination in the world. The new increased cabin bag size is more to be in line with most of our global codeshare partners.
On airBaltic flights, each passenger is allowed to carry on board one cabin bag (55x40x23 centimetres) and one personal item (30x40x10 centimetres). The combined weight of both items cannot exceed 8 kilograms.
“Our passengers have stated that they appreciate the level of service onboard, our punctuality as well as the easy flight selection and booking process,” Gauss added.
