Etihad Airways are pleased to let you know that they will be introducing a new checked baggage policy, effective from today, 31 January 2018. The new global baggage policy will be based on the total weight of your checked baggage, rather than the numbers of pieces. Our USA & Canada baggage policy will continue to be based on number of pieces.
“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,” said Etihad Airways Executive Vice President Commercial, Mohammad Al Bulooki. “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.”
