Air Baltic is based in Riga, Latvia, and operates direct flights from Riga, Tallin (Estonia), and Vilnius (Lithuania), connecting the Baltic countries to the rest of Europe and beyond. The airline was founded in 1995 and is majority owned by the state. It is a bit of a hybrid between the operating models of low cost airlines and traditional airlines. You’ll find information about Air Baltic’s carry on baggage size and weight allowances below.

Air Baltic Hand Luggage Info
As mentioned above, Air Baltic has an 8 kg / 17.6 lb weight limit for all carry on bags combined. But if you would like more than that, the airline has the option for you to purchase an additional 4 kg / 8.8 lb (for a total of 12 kg / 26.4 lb) when you book your ticket. Prices for the additional cabin baggage weight start at 9.99 euros.
Keep in mind that this extra weight is much cheaper to purchase when you book your ticket. If you get to the gate and they weigh your bag, it will cost 60 euros for overweight cabin luggage.
If your hand luggage is found to be bigger than the size restrictions, you will be forced to check it (their site states “where available”) for a 60 euro fee. Make sure your luggage fits the baggage allowances before you leave for the airport!
