Abu Dhabi, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (UAE) – Etihad Airways has introduced a new baggage policy tailored to varying customer requirements in the international markets it serves.

The changes allow for a simpler baggage structure as the allowance for all markets, excluding the US and Canada, is now based on total weight rather than the number of bags checked in.

Etihad Airways Executive Vice President Commercial, Mohammad Al Bulooki, said: “In line with global best practice and market trends, Etihad Airways has developed a baggage policy that best caters to the differing needs of our guests around the world. The switch to a policy based on weight rather than the number of bags simplifies our allowance system and provides greater convenience and customer benefit while enhancing the travel experience.”

With the switch to a weight-based baggage policy, the majority of markets will be entitled to 23kg of checked baggage on Economy Deal fares, 30kg on Economy Saver and Classic fares, and 35kg on Economy Flex fares. Customers in all Business Class fare categories are entitled to 40kg, and First Class customers enjoy a 50kg allowance. Guests in The Residence onboard Etihad Airways’ flagship Airbus A380 fleet are provided with an allowance of four bags at 32kg each.

Notable exceptions where the policy has been tailored to market requirements include all flights from Africa, where the allowance is 40kg as standard on both Economy and Business Class fares. Customers travelling between Australia and Lebanon are entitled to 40kg in both Economy Class and Business Class, and the allowance on flights from the GCC to the Indian Subcontinent starts at 30kg in Economy Class.

Etihad Guest Silver, Gold and Platinum members will continue to receive a complimentary excess baggage allowance of 32kg on US and Canada routes, and 20kg for Platinum members, 15kg for Gold members and 10kg for Silver members on all other routes.

Over 2,000 customers have so far been rewarded with fuel worth over UGX 80 million in the ongoing 10 weeks of Cheer promotion by Vivo Energy Uganda, the company that distributes and markets Shell branded fuels and lubricants in Uganda.

The national promotion which is targeted at all motorists including boda riders, taxi drivers, private motorists and truck drivers was announced in December to reward customers for their loyalty during the festive season.

“For the past 3 weeks, we have been running daily draws at participating Shell stations generating over 2,000 winners who have received various prizes which include fuel worth UGX50,000 for general motorists, UGX15,000 for riders and household groceries. Weekly jackpot winners have received UGX500,000 worth of fuel for general motorists and UGX50,000 for riders,” said Mark Mutungi, the Fuels Brand Manager at Vivo Energy Uganda.

For every UGX 50,000 spent on Shell fuels, lubricants or shop services, customers receive a draw entry coupon at any of the participating Shell service stations.

Thereafter, customers are required to scratch their draw entry coupon to reveal a unique code and SMS both the code and their vehicle registration plate number to 8008 for a chance to win.

Through weekly draws, 10 lucky jackpot winners walk away with UGX 500,000 worth of fuel each.

Marvin Genza, a customer who purchased fuel worth UGX50,000 could not believe his luck upon receiving the UGX500,000 fuel jackpot prize. “This is a great start to the year and I thank Shell for this prize that will sustain me through the rough January blues. I encourage all customers to participate and win.”

“The promotion is ongoing and will run until 16 February with activations spread countrywide at 105 Shell stations. I encourage our customers to participate to stand a chance to win over UGX500 million worth of prizes left,” Mutungi added.

Vivo Energy Uganda, the company that distributes and markets Shell branded fuels and lubricants in Uganda, has been awarded Vivo Energy Group’s Reputation Builders Award for its behavioural change campaign titled, ‘Heads Up!’

Vivo Energy’s Reputation Builders Award is awarded to a project or team that has made a significant contribution to improving the reputation of Vivo Energy with external stakeholders.

‘Heads Up!’ was launched in 2019 with an aim of creating awareness about the probable dangers that school children using public motorcycle transportation, commonly referred to as ‘boda bodas’, face during their daily commute to and from school ; mostly without the required safety helmets.

The partnership between Vivo Energy Uganda and Safe Boda Uganda saw both companies donate child helmets to 12 public schools in high traffic areas of Kampala.

School heads distributed and managed their use among their respective pupils that use motorcycle transportation to attend school.

Announcing the award at the Group’s annual Leadership Conference, the Vivo Energy Group Head of Communications, Rob Foyle said, “The annual Vivo Awards are important as they allow us the chance to both celebrate success, and also recognise and reward some of the best work that’s completed all across our company. Congratulations to team Uganda for winning this award.”

Vivo Energy Uganda Managing Director, Gilbert Assi said, “This is a great honour for our company and for our Corporate Communications team, which is in charge of managing Vivo Energy Uganda’s reputation with all stakeholders through socially impactful community initiatives in education, environment and road safety.”

“Creating safe road users also requires that we increase public awareness about their role in enhancing their own safety. We hope that this campaign will continue to inspire the introduction and enforcement of policy to address regulation of safe transportation of children using motorcycle transportation to and from schools,’’ he added.
