Etihad Airways has introduced a new fares structure and baggage allowance policy.

The move means passengers have eight fares to choose from - economy breaking deals, economy saver, economy value and economy freedom; business breaking deals, business saver and business freedom; while in first class the only fare is freedom.

The different fares allow passengers "to tailor their bookings to their individual needs... are transparent and differ in baggage allowance, flexibility and included benefits that otherwise need to be purchased separately", Etihad said.

Etihad has also changed its baggage policy today.

The maximum dimensions allowed are as follows:

  • To/from Brazil, Canada and the US - 50 x 70 x 38cm
  • To/from all other destinations - 45 x 72 x 90cm

On flights to the UK, the allowance for passengers flying in economy is now two bags weighing up to 23 kilograms each; while in both business and first, it is two bags weighing up to 32 kilograms each.
