Etihad have now officially launched hand-baggage only fares across many of their destinations. This allows Economy Class passengers to purchase lower fares if no checked baggage is required.
Robin Kamark, Etihad chief commercial officer, stated: “After a successful trial of the ‘Deal Fare’ late last year, purchasing behaviour demonstrated guests appreciate having more choice and like to be able to select the travel option that best meets their needs.”
Currently, the Deal Fare is available on flights between Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt and Azerbaijan. By taking advantage of this offer passengers travelling without checked baggage can pay less and still enjoy complimentary carry-on baggage up to 7kg (Size restrictions apply).
If you are a member of Etihad’s guest programme you will be aware of a whole range of exclusive benefits you can enjoy, including lounge access, priority check-in, upgrades to first class and even rentals of the world’s best car brand.
The Etihad Guest scheme is tiered to reward frequent travellers with the airline. Members enrolled in the programme at the levels shown below can travel on Deal Fares and still check in baggage free of charge:
Etihad Guest Silver: 10kg
Etihad Guest Gold: 15kg
Etihad Guest Platinum: 20kg
