Excess baggage discount

How it works

  1. These vouchers will be given to you physically if you are visiting an Etihad office or will be emailed to you if have called one of our Contact Centres.
  2. These vouchers must be presented at the airport check-in desk with your baggage.

Notes

  • Vouchers can be issued for weight concept, piece concept or a combination of both where applicable.
  • In addition, guests can be issued multiple vouchers for one segment. For example, the first voucher for extra weight and the second for extra piece.
  • The service is offered on a space-available basis. 
  • If the baggage cannot be transported on the same flight as you, it will be loaded onto the next available flight.
