Emirates have changed their baggage policy for tickets issued from 15 November 2014.
There are new rules for the length of a bag as well as its total size (length + width + height).
When flying with Emirates you can enjoy the following checked baggage allowances:
- 30kg in Economy Class
- 40kg in Business Class
- 50kg in First Class
For tickets issued on or after 15th November 2014
Individual items with total dimensions exceeding 300cm (118 inches) cannot be transported as checked
baggage, and must be sent as cargo or freight. There are no exceptions to this rule.
For tickets issued prior to 15th November 2014
Items beyond 300cm (118 inches) and up to 400cm (157 inches) in length may be accepted in exceptional cases. Items exceeding this limit must be referred to Emirates SkyCargo. If the free baggage allowance is exceeded, normal excess charges apply.
