Tips for checked baggage allowance:

  • Mark each piece of baggage with a name tag with your contacts (home address and the address of residence abroad). Name tags are available at the information desk.
  • In the event that you are traveling in a group (family, partners), you have the option to add up the total luggage weight. however, one piece of luggage must not exceed 32 kg (because of additional handling).
  • Do not put valuable things in your checked baggage, such as money, credit cards, jewellery, electronic equipment, passports and other personal documents. Carry valuable things in your hand luggage.
  • We recommend that you wrap your luggage in protective foil.
  • Verify if your luggage meets the weight and size limits set by the carrier with which you are travelling. Avoid possible charges for excess weight or oversized baggage.
  • If your luggage exceeds the weight limit, you can pay for excess baggage after checking-in at the ticket sales counter or information desk.
  • Carefully keep the luggage ticket that will be issued by the staff at check-in, you will need it for possible claims.

Hand and cabin luggage can contain:

  • Money, valuable items.
  • Electronic devices.
  • Medicine for your own use, necessary for and during the period of your stay.
  • Baby food needed for the journey (milk, tea, snacks, etc.).

Travelling with children

Weight limits and other information when travelling with children can be found here.

Oversized items

Conditions for carriage of oversized items such as bicycles, golf clubs, skis and sporting firearms, etc. must be discussed and arranged in advance with your airline company or the tour operator that operates the flight. No size restrictions apply to prams/pushchairs. See Travelling with Children.

Counting of luggage weight

Each carrier sets its own luggage weight limits, so here we only mention the basic information from carriers who operate their own aircraft from Ostrava airport. Generally, however, for all of those carriers is valid that if two or more passengers travel together as a group (family, partners) on the same flight and check in together, it is possible to put their luggage together, i.e. their entitlements to free baggage weight is added and the baggage is checked-in jointly on one passenger. When traveling with Czech Airlines groups must be visible also in the reservation, otherwise it is not possible to add baggage weight. At Ryanair it is also possible to add baggage weight, but it is necessary to have a reservation together.
