Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, on Tuesday increased the complimentary baggage allowance for Coral Economy class guests to 30kg. Members of the Etihad Guest programme will enjoy additional allowances. For example, an Etihad Guest Elite member travelling in economy class will now be able to check as much as 50kg of baggage on a complimentary basis. “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,” chief commercial officer Peter Baumgartner said. The 30kg allowance is not included in travelling to or from the US and Canada, where baggage policies are regulated on a per-piece basis.
