Abu Dhabi, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (UAE) – Etihad Airways has introduced a new baggage policy tailored to varying customer requirements in the international markets it serves.
changes allow for a simpler baggage structure as the allowance for all markets,
excluding the US and Canada, is now based on total weight rather than the
number of bags checked in.
Airways Executive Vice President Commercial, Mohammad Al Bulooki, said: “In
line with global best practice and market trends, Etihad Airways has developed
a baggage policy that best caters to the differing needs of our guests around
the world. The switch to a policy based on weight rather than the number of
bags simplifies our allowance system and provides greater convenience and
customer benefit while enhancing the travel experience.”
the switch to a weight-based baggage policy, the majority of markets will be
entitled to 23kg of checked baggage on Economy Deal fares, 30kg on Economy
Saver and Classic fares, and 35kg on Economy Flex fares. Customers in all
Business Class fare categories are entitled to 40kg, and First Class customers
enjoy a 50kg allowance. Guests in The Residence onboard Etihad Airways’
flagship Airbus A380 fleet are provided with an allowance of four bags at 32kg
each. Exceptions apply to select markets. For full details visit our baggage allowance page.
Guest Silver, Gold and Platinum members will continue to receive a
complimentary excess baggage allowance of 32kg on US and Canada routes, and
20kg for Platinum members, 15kg for Gold members and 10kg for Silver members on
all other routes.
