It is important to be aware of what you can and cannot take with you when you fly

Emirates customers traveling from North or South America can enjoy our generous checked baggage allowances.

From North America:

  • Two bags of up to 23kg (50lb) each in Economy Class
  • Two bags of up to 32kg (71lb) each in First Class and Business Class

From South America:

  • Two bags of up to 32kg (71lb) each in all classes

Note: if your travel starts in the United States and the first carrier on your booking is not Emirates, that carrier’s baggage policy may apply for the whole itinerary, in accordance with US Department of Transportation regulations – learn more.

For itineraries which do not include North or South America, customers can check in 30kg in Economy Class, 40kg in Business Class, and 50kg in First Class.

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.
