Hold or checked baggage is the baggage you are handing over for transport at the airport check-in counter. Hold baggage is transported in the aircraft cargo hold or compartment and is not available during the flight.
If you're checking-in for your flight at the airport you will hand over hold baggage at the check-in counter of designated airline.
If you're checking-in for your flight online, with mobile or at self-service check-in kiosks you will hand over your hold baggage at the indicated baggage drop off counter. During check-in you will be given a receipt (sticker) for checked baggage.
Most of the carriers provide free of charge hold baggage transport whilst some carriers charge separately every baggage except hand luggage.
On the flights of the carriers providing checked baggage transport free of charge allowance varies depending on the carrier, destination and travel class.
Most of the carriers apply "piece concept" meaning that baggage allowances which are not subject to an additional charge are up to 2 pieces of baggage weighting up to 32kg each for business class passengers and single baggage item weighting up to 20 or 23kg for economy class passengers.
For the details on hold baggage policy, allowances and total amount of hold baggage please ask your airline when booking your flight or upon arrival to the airport at the designated airlines' office.
For your security certain items are not allowed to be carried in your baggage.
If your baggage exceeds declared allowances or amount excess baggage is a subject to extra charge. The fees for excess baggage is determined separately by carriers. Please find details regarding applicable tariffs on excess baggage at selected airline.
