Interline Baggage Policy
If your travel starts in the United States and the first carrier on your booking is not Emirates, different rules may apply – learn more.
Interline flights are flights that are on the same ticket as your Emirates flights, but operated by another airline and do not have an 'EK' flight number. These airlines may have a different baggage allowance to Emirates. Refer to the Interline Partner Baggage Allowance page for information on the allowance or charges for carry-on baggage and the first and second checked bag.
