What is my allowance for checked baggage?

Emirates has one of the world's most generous baggage policies. Economy Class customers can check in 30kg, Business Class travellers 40kg and if you are flying First Class you can travel with 50kg 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 itinerary includes flights operated by other airlines, different baggage rules may apply for these flights – learn more.

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