Etihad increases baggage allowance for premium customers

Premium class passengers on Etihad Airways are to benefit from an additional 10kg baggage allowance, meaning Business Class clients can now travel with up to 40kg of luggage, before incurring an overweight charge.

The airline points out that this is 8kg more than the equivalent services offered by both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic at 32kg per person.  Etihad Guest Gold Members will be offered up to 65kgs.  Economy Class remains the same at 20kgs per customer, 3kg less than the other two carriers.

Etihad Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Peter Baumgartner. said: “We are delighted to be able to reward our premium guests and loyalty programme members with an additional luggage allowance.  At Etihad Airways, we are always looking to make the experience of flying as simple, convenient and rewarding as possible.  We believe this increased allowance will prove very popular with our guests.” www.etihad.com
