What is my allowance for checked baggage?

Emirates has one of the world’s most generous baggage policies. Economy Class customers can check in 30 kg, Business Class travelers 40 kg and if you are flying First Class you can travel with 50 kg of checked baggage. These weights do not apply to itineraries involving North or South America. Please check our baggage allowance calculator for restrictions and to find out which applies to you.

If your travel starts in the United States and the first carrier on your booking is not Emirates, different rules may apply – learn more.

If you have calculated your allowance to be over 32 kg (71 lb), please note that Dubai Civil Aviation prohibits the acceptance of any one piece of baggage weighing more than 32 kg (71 lb), into, out of or via Dubai International Airport.
