Baggage Information

Free baggage allowance depends on your cabin class and flight destination. Passengers are able to bring at least one piece of carry-on luggage, free of charge, as long as it meets the size and weight restrictions. When traveling to or from the United States, all travelers are permitted to check at least two pieces of luggage with a maximum weight of 50 lbs. per piece. To avoid additional fees and for more information regarding baggage allowances and restrictions, visit the Etihad Airways website.

U.S. Check-in & Preclearance

Check-in begins 3 hours prior to departure and closes 1 hour prior to departure for all U.S. gateways. To avoid lines, check-in online up to 48 hours before departure.

All Etihad customers flying to the United States will have access to Abu Dhabi International Airport’s United States Preclearance facility in Terminal 3. This facility enables Etihad customers to pre-clear the U.S. Customs and Border Protection formalities before boarding their flights in Abu Dhabi. Upon arrival in the U.S., customers will be treated as domestic arrivals. Shorter connection times are possible for onward flights in the U.S., with their luggage arriving to the final destination. For more information about tourist and transit visas for Abu Dhabi, please visit Etihad's e-booklet.
