Etihad Oversized Baggage Fees

We understand that sometimes you need to carry items that are larger than the checked baggage standard dimensions. If your baggage exceeds these dimensions but weighs no more than the maximum limit of 32kg, you’ll just be charged an oversized baggage fee each way of your flight:

– All other flights, including US and Canada – USD $60
– Flights within Middle East USD $40
– Flights between Middle East and Indian Subcontinent – USD $40
– Flights between Beijing and Nagoy = USD $40

Individual items of baggage exceeding 32kg in weight, or with any single dimension longer than 300cm will not be accepted.

Save Money by Buying Excess Baggage in Advance. Buy either during initial Booking or Telephone. If you have to pay Excess Baggage Fees at the Airport, you will always pay more
