Batik Air Baggage Allowance offers you a wide range of bag options to make your travel more convenient. Every fare allowance has different weight and size restrictions. The amount of baggage you can take free of charge depends on the selected route, chosen travel class, and ticket terms and conditions. Moreover, checked and carry-on luggage follow their own policies. Most of the time, both are included in the allowance, but in some cases, they incur additional costs. Before purchasing a fare, ensure you go through its Batik Air baggage policy and check whether it meets your travel requirements. 

Batik Air Cabin Baggage Allowance

Batik Air Cabin Baggage SIZE

Cabin bags, also known as carry-on luggage, are items that you can bring on board the flight. Passengers do not submit them at the check-in counter; instead, they can store them in the overhead compartment of the aircraft. Therefore, the bag should not exceed 56 cm x 36 cm x 23 cm in size to fit the provided space. On the other hand, Batik Air baggage limits for Indonesia are 40 cm x 30 cm x 20 cm for Boeing/Airbus aircraft. The limit varies according to the purchased fare class. For instance, you can carry only one piece of cabin baggage up to 7kg if flying in Economy Class. Meanwhile, passengers flying in business class are allowed to carry two carry-on bags.

In addition to this, passengers can also take their personal items. They can choose between a laptop and a handbag. This applies to all travel classes. Any bag not in compliance with the baggage regulations is put to the hold storage of the aircraft. 

Conditions for Carrying Smart Baggage/ Luggage

Suppose you are traveling with a “Smart Baggage” or bag with lithium batteries installed, including motors, GPS, GSM Bluetooth, RFID, or WiFi. You may carry it on board only if it checks all the conditions stated below:

  • The lithium battery is acceptable only when the watt-hour rating is under 2.7 Wh or 0.3g lithium metal.
  • Such batteries are strictly prohibited in the cabin baggage if they are non-removable.
  • All of its features, like GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc, should be turned off. 

In a case where the battery exceeds the restrictions, and it is non-removal, passengers cannot carry it on board.
