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

Emirates has one of the world’s most generous baggage policies. When flying with Emirates you can enjoy the following checked baggage allowances:

  • 30kg in Economy Class
  • 40kg in Business Class
  • 50kg in First Class

If you are an Emirates Skywards Platinum, Gold or Silver member, you may also be entitled to additional allowances.

Note: for itineraries including any destinations in North or South America, different baggage rules apply: for North America, customers are allowed two bags of up to 23kg each in Economy Class, and two bags of up to 32kg each in First Class or Business Class. For South America, customers are allowed two bags of up to 32kg each in all classes.

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.
