Customers with individual items exceeding above dimensions up to 300cm (118 inches) will be charged an additional fee.

Passengers travelling with snow and water ski equipment that’s carried as excess baggage (ie over their allowance of two pieces of baggage) will receive 33% off the standard excess baggage charge. This only applies to the first set of equipment.  For any additional sets, the normal excess baggage charges apply.

A set of snow ski equipment may consist of:

  • one pair of skis, one pair of ski poles and one pair of ski boots or
  • one snow board and one pair of boots.

A set of water ski equipment may consist of:

  • one pair of standard water skis or
  • one slalom water ski.
Rescue equipment (including avalanche rescue equipment)

Rescue equipment is considered normal baggage and will incur normal excess baggage rates if in excess of your baggage allowance. All equipment must conform to the Dangerous Goods Regulations. Contact your local Emirates office for details.

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

Should your overall baggage weight or amount exceed the normal free allowance, excess baggage rates will apply. Please contact your local Emirates office for more information on excess baggage rates.
