Back to news

Fotolia_52110394_XS.jpg

If you are going to fly with Emirates and you want to know everything about their baggage rules, read on!

Emirates – cabin baggage

Passengers travelling with Emirates can carry one piece of hand baggage. Its dimensions should not exceed 55×38×20 cm. The maximum weight allowed is 7 kg. Those travelling with infants may take one more piece of baggage onboard and can also carry foldable pushchairs or buggies.

Duty-free purchases are allowed to take into cabin in reasonable quantities.

Emirates – free checked baggage allowance

The baggage policy of Emirates is very generous. Each passenger is allowed a bag weighing up to 30 kg for free. While flying to and from North and South America, the rules are different. For flights to and from North America, you are entitled to two bags, both weighing up to 23 kg. You are allowed two bags of 32 kg each while flying to and from South America.

If your flight is connecting or code share, your specific baggage allowance will appear on your ticket during booking.

Emirates – excess baggage

Emirates fees for checking excess baggage differ. To calculate the extra fees for excess baggage, use Emirates excess baggage calculator

    To all brothers and sisters from India,,why are you taking water with you?let Emirates give you water.ok
    You can bring MaNGOES only to UK or Europe and NEVER to the US.ok.If you do and get caught they will put your name in the system and everytime you come to the US even if you push and shove to get out of the aircraft like we do in India ,you will have to go through agriculture and will be delayed.
    Before you leave your home weigh the bags and leave some behind if you are overweight( I mean luggage) Have some one else bring it,later.Ok
    More Indian brothers and sisters travel on Emirates than any other Nationality,.Dont let the American brothers tell you that they are " KINGS" (meaning largest number on the planet) for travel,
    Emirates makes the most money from Indian brothers and sisters.ok.
    NO matter what your complaints are I think Emirates does run a good show.
    I am a little overweight due to my passion for idli and sambar and most times Emirates gives me exit row seats.

    What is written is correct, the US/Canada are 2 x 23kg (not over 23kg each) and South America is 2 x 32kg. ALL other destinations are 30kg so no need to ask from Moscow to Zambia - it is 30kg as per above. You can check in more than one bag, as long as the total is 30kg or under.
    Hand luggage is 7kg but usually if you take a laptop, 10kg is ok. They allow extra for a laptop. Handbag is also allowed. Over 10kg hand luggage for economy and you may be asked to check it in or leave it behind.
    Bicycles - if it's under 30kg including your luggage, fine. If you check in more than 30kg you will be charged excess.
    If you go over your free limits the charge is very expensive - in Australia it is $94 for every kg you are over your limit if traveling to Europe.
    5ltrs of water - fine if it is properly sealed and again, as long as your luggage is under 30kg.

    All the details about Emirates' baggage policy are update at their website. Also, feel free to contact them in case of complains, as we are not anyhow connected with them, I am afraid I am not able to help you.

    Emirates are a set of robbing cunts when it comes to checking in extra baggage! They lost my friends case for 6 days in NZ leaving hin travelling the country with no gear!

    Wheb returning to the Uk from Jakarta we was un able to check an extra bag online due to problems with the web site, turned up at the airport and the cheeky bastards charged him $848 for the extra case! Wankers wankers wankers!

  • Padma

    about 2 years ago

    Hi. thank you for the info! I am Indian traveling from Mumbai to Virginia. So i know I can take 2 bags of 23kgs each. I need to know 2 things- (1) Is the cabin baggage of 7kg different from a separate laptop bag? As laptops have to be carried in a separate backpack. (2) I have a stop over in dubai. I have to take another connecting domestic flight from an international airport in Atlanta (where I will have my immigration check) to my destination. When will I have to collect my bags? And will they be taken care of at least until I get to Atlanta?
    I would really appreciate the help.

  • Petra

    Hi linda,
    when booking your flight it should be always clearly stated whether you can take 1 bag or 2 bags. If you can take 1 bag only I am afraid you cannot split it into two bags - I would recommend to Emirates' calculator where you can find details for your flights http://www.emirates.com/…culator.aspx
