Operational updates

Last updated: 30 November 2015, 14:55 Dubai (GMT+4)

Hover boards, lithium batteries, and other restricted items are not allowed in check-in or cabin luggage.

Emirates is reminding all passengers to check the permitted list of carry on and checked-in items for safe and undisrupted travel this holiday season.

To ensure the safety of passengers and crew, spare lithium batteries used for electronic devices such as cameras, mobiles phones and laptops are restricted from checked-in baggage. A popular item containing lithium batteries is the smart balance wheels also known as ‘hover boards’. Emirates restricts all smart balance wheels – with or without lithium batteries removed - from checked-in or carry-on luggage.

All liquids, gels and aerosols, pastes, lotions, creams, drinks and other items of similar consistency must be in containers with a capacity no greater than 100ml. Those carried in containers larger than 100ml will not be accepted, even if the container is only partially filled.

For more information and full list of restricted items, please visit our baggage information section.

Partial runway closure at JKIA

From 2 April 2015, the runway at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) will be partially closed. This is due to upgrade works taking place between midnight and 6am for the next year. 

To ensure that airport operations run smoothly with minimal or no impact to passengers’ travel plans, the Kenya Airport Authority (KAA) is advising all passengers to allow plenty of time to reach the airport as traffic will be busier than normal. 

Emirates customers booked to travel on flight EK722 from 2 April 2015 should therefore ensure they arrive at JKIA no later than four hours before the scheduled departure of their flight.
