Abu Dhabi-based carrier Etihad Airways has announced changes to its baggage policy to Manila, as an exemption to one free baggage piece concept basis not exceeding 30kgs.

The new policy, effective from September 14, 2015, allows Manila-bound economy passengers to enjoy more than one free baggage not exceeding 23kgs. per bag.

“In line with industry best practice, we are moving to a fair and transparent baggage concept.” Etihad Airways chief commercial officer Peter Baumgartner said.

For Manila, customers flying economy value and economy freedom will now have increased allowance for two pieces of baggage at 23kg per bag, up from one bag weighing 30kg. according to Etihad.

The new policy will help the airline align more closely Etihad’s partner airlines, it added.

The airline flies to Manila twice daily, and it has code share agreements with Philippine Airlines to Abu Dhabi.
