When the passengers have booked their flight, the next thing they do is to start preparing for the flight. These preparations include a lot of things such as the check-in information, boarding pass, and most importantly, the baggage. The passengers need to know how much baggage they can carry and what are the rules and regulations from the Airline which concerns this. If they will be well enlightened about the baggage policy, then they do not have to face any difficulties during the check-in or security check procedures. Further, we will discuss more about it from the cost to policy.
There is a limit of baggage which is allowed free of cost at Ethiopian Airlines. The passenger can carry 23 kg of luggage for free. If, in any case, they have crossed the limit set by the Airlines, then they have to pay the extra baggage fee. They have to pay $60 per bag to the Airline as extra luggage charges. It also depends on the class, route, and the things the passengers will carry to the flight.
The passengers are allowed to carry 2 bags of 23 kg for free if they have booked a ticket in Economy Class. For Business Class, the passengers can carry 2 bags with 32 kg of weight or 3 bags or 2 bags weighing 23 kg. All these bags are permitted to the flight free of cost. The passengers also need to make sure that the bags do not cross the total dimension limit of 62 inches (158 cm).
The maximum dimensions for both the carry-on baggage and personal item are typically 55 cm x 35 cm x 25 cm (21.5 in x 13.5 in x 9.5 in). However, please note that baggage allowances can vary based on the specific route, fare type, and ticket class, so it's essential to check the Ethiopian Airlines website or contact their customer service for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
The max-to-max weight that the Airline can allow the passengers is 32 kg. Whether the passengers are carrying one bag or three, the most important thing is the weight and weight above 32 kg is not allowed free of cost at Ethiopian Airlines. Passengers should carry their baggage after carefully checking their weight and size limit, and all the bags should be in good condition, as the damaged or disfigured bags will not be accepted.
The Passengers should keep in the notice that the Airline allows 23 kg of free baggage allowance for all the domestic flights, and for the International flight, it is 32 kg with total size dimensions of 62 inches. The passengers also need to make sure that they are not bringing any prohibited items such as syringes, scissors, needles, knives, etc, or if they do, then they should inform the Airline and take permission beforehand.
Passengers will not be allowed to check-in for their Ethiopian flight if they do not follow the baggage guidelines properly and cross the baggage allowance limit. Either they have to pay the extra baggage fee, or they will not be permitted an entry for the flight. With this, the carry bag weighing 7 kg is acceptable free of cost at the Airline for Economy Class. On the other hand, they can carry 2 bags of 7 kg for business class. The bags should be in great condition that they fit onto the overhead cabin on the flight.
