Baggage allowance and guidelines

We've streamlined our baggage policy with simplified allowances across all fare types. If you booked your ticket before 16 April 2024, the baggage allowance on your booking confirmation still applies. Check now

Your baggage allowance depends on your route, ticket type and Etihad Guest Tier Status. That gives you the flexibility to pack what you need without worrying about additional fees. Use the baggage calculator below to understand your checked and cabin baggage allowance with Etihad Airways. If you've already booked your flight, you can also see your baggage allowance at  

Remember to remove all bag tags and stickers that may have been left on your bag from previous trips.
