Etihad Airways Increases Coral Economy Baggage Allowance

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 9 November 2012

Etihad Airways has increased the complimentary baggage allowance for Coral Economy class guests to 30kg, except on travel to/from the USA and Canada, where baggage policies are regulated on a per-piece basis.

This means members of the Etihad Guest program can now enjoy even greater allowances. For example, an Etihad Guest Elite member traveling in Economy class will now be able to check-in as much as 50 kilos of baggage on a complimentary basis.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways 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 passenger in any cabin will be able to check in up to 15kg of Scuba equipment and golf bags weighing up to 15 kg 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.
