Extra Baggage, Extra Adventure, Elevate Your Baggage Game

When it comes to checked baggage, Ethiopian Airlines has your back. Whether you’re a seasoned globetrotter or a first-time flyer, Ethiopian Airlines baggage rules are your passport to hassle-free adventures. Let’s unravel the essentials:

Maximum Dimensions: Your checked bag can spread its wings up to 62 inches (158 cm), that’s including handles and wheels. Imagine it strutting down the baggage carousel like a runway model.

Weight Limits: The magic number is 50 lbs (23 kg). But wait, there’s more! If you’re feeling generous to your wardrobe, aim for 70 lbs (32 kg). Your clothes will thank you for the extra legroom.

Odd-Sized Items: Got a surfboard, a guitar, or perhaps a life-sized giraffe sculpture? Fear not! they’ve got tips on handling odd-sized items. Your baggage is about to become a conversation starter.

Carry-On Essentials, Elevate Your In-Flight Experience

Economy Class: You’re entitled to 1 piece of carry-on luggage, weighing up to 7 kg. Think books, gadgets, and that lucky charm you never leave behind.

Business Class: Double the delight! Business class flyers get 2 pieces of carry-on, each strutting its stuff at 7 kg. Your laptop, travel journal, and designer shades? Sorted.

Dimensions Dance: Your carry-on isn’t just any bag—it’s your co-pilot. Keep it within these dimensions: 21.6×15.7×7.8 inches (55cmx40cmx20cm). And don’t forget the weight limit: 22 lbs (10 kg), including your secret stash of chocolate.

Personal Item Perks, Because You Deserve It

Ethiopian Airlines believes in the little things—the personal touches that make your journey uniquely yours. Alongside your carry-on, you’re invited to bring a personal item onboard. Slide it under your seat, and just like that, you get an instant access to your travel essentials.
