Instruction for Storing Cabin Baggage Aboard Aircraft:

It is not possible to place baggage under the seat in front of you on the first row and at emergency exits.

Cabin baggage and small personal items that exceed the maximum permitted amount, size and/or weight will be transported as checked baggage for a fee (odkaz na ceník) in the aircraft cargo hold.

Benefits of purchasing extra baggage and overweight baggage ahead of time:

  • The highest fee is charged at gates.
  • It is not possible to pay with cash at gates, only by credit cards.
  • If the passenger is unable to pay the fee, we are authorised to exclude the passenger from transport.

Aircraft storage capacity is limited. For the sake of transport safety and passenger comfort, on certain flights, your cabin baggage will be transported as checked baggage for free.

Checked baggage

Checked baggage transport aboard Czech Airlines’ flights follows the conditions of the price package under which a ticket is purchased. Checked baggage transport under the cheapest, LITE, package is subject to a fee.
