Etihad Airways has launched a new hand baggage only ‘Deal Fare’ across selected destinations, allowing travellers to purchase lower fares in Economy Class if no checked baggage is required. 

The ‘Deal Fare’ includes a complimentary carry-on baggage allowance of 7kg and is available on flights between Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt and Azerbaijan.

Robin Kamark, Etihad Airways Chief Commercial Officer, said: “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.

“We are enhancing our product offering to align with customer feedback. Guests travelling for business, weekend getaways or day trips who like to travel light can now avail cheaper fares.”

Guests looking to add additional checked baggage after purchasing a ‘Deal Fare’ can simply buy extra allowance at check-in or enjoy a 20 per cent discount when buying in advance online.

Etihad Guest members who purchase the ‘Deal Fare’ can continue to enjoy free checked baggage allowance (Etihad Guest Silver – 10kg, Etihad Guest Gold – 15kg and Etihad Guest Platinum – 20kg).  

Etihad Airways has successfully implemented several new ancillary products to provide guests additional choice including extra legroom seats, neighbour-free seats and preferred seating.
