Croatia Airlines Baggage Allowance 2024 Luggage Guidelines

Published on December 18, 2023

One of the most essential things for all your travel plans is the luggage and stuff you pack for the trip. If you are traveling with Croatia Airlines, you don’t need to worry about your luggage allowance. Croatia Airlines baggage allowance is so flexible that passengers can carry almost everything they need for a personal or a business trip. You can bring a cabin bag with a small handbag, laptop bag, or briefcase. 

Croatia Airlines Hand Baggage Allowance

Croatia Airlines Hand Baggage

Passengers traveling with Croatia Airlines get enough baggage allowance to carry almost all their important stuff. Under Croatia Airlines baggage allowance, the airline offers one cabin bag, small laptop bag, handbag, or briefcase. The mentioned allowance is applicable for Economy Class passengers. 

However, there are some flights on which the airline offers the same cabin baggage allowance for passengers traveling in Business Class, depending on the aircraft type. Otherwise, it provides two cabin baggage allowance for all business-class passengers.

Economy Class passengers are allowed to carry a maximum of 8 kg of weight with a maximum size dimension of not more than 115 cm. The maximum size dimensions must not exceed 55 x 40 x 20 cm. Business Class passengers can carry a maximum of 8 kg for each bag. Croatia Airlines hand baggage allowance allows passengers to carry bags with overall linear size dimensions that must not exceed 115 cm or 55 x 40 x 20 cm and 57 x 54 x 15 cm if carrying a foldable garment bag.

Cabin ClassNumber of bagsAllowed WeightMaximum Size
Economy Class18 kg115 cm (55x40x20 cm)
Business Class28 kg (Each Piece)115 cm (55x40x20 cm) and 57 x 54 x 15 cm (foldable garment bag)

Apart from the main cabin bag, passengers can carry an additional handbag on both the cabin classes. Croatia Air carry on luggage states that the number of purses allowed is 1, with a maximum size dimension of 40 x 30 x 10 cm for Economy and Business Class passengers.

The airline only allows passengers to carry the luggage up to the permitted limit. Otherwise, the airline may refuse to accept the baggage on board, which will be transported as checked luggage. Depending on the aircraft type, the airline may carry your cabin luggage in the hold. This may be done even if you follow all the handbag restrictions and the airline doesn’t charge additional fees. 

Passengers must place the smaller handbag under the seat in front of them and the larger cabin hand baggage inside the overhead compartment. This is one of the reasons why passengers must follow all the size and weight restrictions so they can easily place their luggage without any help.

However, car seats are only allowed if the passenger has booked a separate seat for the infant. 

If the child’s age is more than two years up to 4 years, one stroller can be carried free of charge. If the passengers have yet to book any seat for the infant or child, they cannot bring any hand baggage.
