How will my baggage allowance be calculated?

Depending on your route, your baggage allowance may be calculated by piece or weight.

On routes that include stops in North or South America your baggage allowance will be calculated by piece. You will be allowed a set number of items, each of which must weigh under a certain weight.*

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

For all other routes, your baggage will be calculated by weight. You will be allowed to take any number of items with a combined total weight under an amount determined by your route, class and Emirates Skywards status.

Find the exact details of your baggage allowance for any flight by visiting the baggage allowance calculator.

*Exceptions apply, please check with your local Emirates office.
