EgyptAir to revise baggage allowance from June
EgyptAir has claimed the latest revisions to its baggage allowance policy will “lower the cost of travel” for passengers.
The new policy – which will be implemented from 1st June 2011 - provides economy class customers on all international flights to carry two free bags, 23 kilos each, with a total of 46 kilos. On the other hand, business class customers can carry two free pieces of baggage with 32 kilos each, in addition to one hand bag accompanied onboard with a maximum weight of seven kilos on all classes.
Moreover, customers flying to any domestic destination in Egypt can carry one baggage with a maximum of 23 kilos on economy, 32 kilos on business in addition to 7 kilos to be carried onboard.
EgyptAir Plus frequent flyers can enjoy additional benefits, as the gold card holders can carry an additional baggage with a maximum of 23 kilos, while silver card holders will enjoy a 50 % discount on the third piece.
“In spite of the increase of operating costs because of the soaring oil prices, EgyptAir has launched this new policy to support the Egyptian customers and to encourage the tourism traffic into Egypt,” stated Engineer Hussein Massoud, chairman and CEO of EgyptAir Holding.
