Croatia Airlines - Hand baggage

Hand baggage

Hand baggage allowance

Economy Class passengers: 1 piece
  • max. weight 8 kg
  • total sum of dimensions up to 115 cm (55x40x20)
Business Class passengers: 2 pieces
  • max. weight per piece 8 kg
  • total sum of dimensions up to 115 cm (55x40x20) or 57x54x15cm if it is a foldable garment bag

In exceptional cases, depending on the type of aircraft, hand baggage allowance for Business Class passengers can be restricted to 1 piece. 

Baggage that does not conform to the prescribed dimensions/weight will not be accepted as hand baggage, and can only be transported as checked baggage. In some cases, this entails additional charges.

Place your hand baggage in the baggage compartment above your seat. Heavier items should be put under the seat in front of you, unless this is the row where the emergency exit is located.

Your hand baggage should be light enough for you to be able to put it in the baggage compartment without any assistance. Our flight attendants will be happy to help you find a baggage compartment.

What to pack?

Each passenger may additionally take:
  • 1 personal item with a maximum size of 40x30x10 cm (16x12x4 in) into the passenger cabin
    (e.g. 1 ladies hand bag or 1 laptop or 1 shoulder-strapped bag)

In addition to 1 personal item, each passenger travelling with a child under 2 years of age is also entitled to:
  • 1 infant's carrying basket or 1 fully collapsible stroller/pushchair or 1 car seat 
  • Infant's food for consumption on board.
*Carrying baskets, strollers and car seats have to be handed over at the gate or before boarding the aircraft. Only car seats can be accepted on board, provided that they are carried on a separate seat purchased for the infant.

In addition to 1 personal item, disabled passengers may also take:
  • 1 pair of crutches and/or braces or any other prosthetic device

Please find additional information on the forbidden items in hand baggage printed on the ticket cover, since Croatia Airlines does not accept any liability for them being damaged or taken away by security officers.
