How will my baggage allowance be calculated?

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

On routes that include stops in North, Central, or South America, your baggage allowance will be calculated by piece. You will be allowed a set number of items, each of which must not exceed a maximum 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 allowance will be calculated by weight. You will be allowed to take any number of items with a combined total weight less than an amount determined by your route, travel class, and Emirates Skywards status.

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

If your itinerary includes flights operated by other airlines, different baggage rules may apply for these flights—learn more.

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