Special baggage and sports gear

Booking

Due to their weight and volume, the number of sports equipment items you can transport in checked baggage is limited. Croatia Airlines must be notified of such items during the booking of the fare.

When booking your fare, be sure to specify the type of sports equipment, musical instrument or other baggage of non-standard dimensions you will be bringing with you. In order to make sure that your precious musical instrument reaches the destination undamaged, we recommend that you buy an extra ticket for the seat next to yours, where you will place the instrument during the flight.

Find the maximum dimensions of non-standard baggage in the table below:

Maximum dimensions (from cabin floor) Maximum dimensions (from seat level)
A319/320 150 x 42 x 25 cm 110 x 42 x 50 cm
Dash 8 Q400 125 x 42 x 25 cm 80 x 42 x 50 cm

Sports equipment

Sports equipment is any equipment used for sports. Sports equipment that is most commonly transported falls within one of 2 categories (“NORMAL” or “BIG”). Any sports equipment that is not listed in the table is subject to excess baggage charges, not sports equipment charges.

If the sports equipment has been packed together with the remaining baggage, checked baggage rules apply, including the excess baggage charges. It is included in the baggage allowance and additional charges apply only if it exceeds the permitted weight/number of items. The 158 cm max. rule does not apply.

In case of sports equipment that exceeds the checked baggage weight limit applying to your fare family, but weighs under 32 kg, sports equipment charges will apply. If the sports equipment exceeds the permitted weight limit of 32 kg and/or size limit of 350 cm, it will be transported as cargo. For more information, click here.

If your sports equipment is listed as standard, but exceeds the maximum permitted length or weight for that category, the higher category charges will apply.
