Etihad Increases Economy Class Baggage Allowance to 30kg

Etihad Airways has increased the baggage allowance for its Coral Economy Class to 30kg (excluding flights to/from USA/Canada, for which baggage is on a per-piece basis). Members of the Etihad Guest programme will have additional allowances, as much as 50kg for an Elite member.

Peter Baumgartner, Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are continuously looking at ways to improve our offering for guests. We believe our generous baggage allowances will prove very popular with our guests across all cabins, from Coral Economy to Pearl Business and Diamond First Class, while our Etihad Guest members enjoy even more baggage rewards.”

The new guidelines will also allow for complimentary carriage of some sporting equipment. In addition to the standard checked baggage allowance, a guest in any cabin will be able to check in up to 15kg of scuba equipment and golf bags weighing up to 15kg on a complimentary basis.

In March 2012, Etihad Airways increased the baggage allowance for premium passengers to 40kg for Pearl Business Class and 50kg for Diamond First Class.
