Baggage services in Dubai

From offering a helping hand with your bags when you arrive to looking after them while you explore Dubai, Emirates baggage services make traveling through Dubai International Airport as easy as possible.

Concierge service

Take advantage of our dedicated porters, who can help you with your luggage when you check in at Departures or when you pick up your luggage from baggage claim and take it to your car, bus, or taxi on arrival.

Look for porters at the entrance to Emirates Terminal 3 Departures and after Passport Control at Arrivals.

The concierge service costs AED 30 per regular trolley and AED 70 per flat-bed trolley.

Baggage wrapping

To protect your bags when traveling, use the baggage-wrapping service available at Departures in Emirates Terminal 3. For AED 30 per bag, your luggage will be wrapped in strong transparent plastic, helping to keep your bags in pristine condition while in transit.

You can find baggage-wrapping machines just before the check-in counters in Departures.

Odd-shaped luggage

We highly recommend avoiding non-conveyable baggage when traveling, as these can disrupt the baggage handling system at the airport.

Round and irregular-shaped parcels, bags with loose straps or handles that cannot be removed or secured, and bags that do not have a flat surface are classified as non-conveyable bags.

If you’re traveling with such luggage, ensure the long straps are secured, and/or repack it in cardboard boxes (available at baggage wrapping kiosks at the airport in Dubai), or use travel bags (available to buy at the airport duty free).

Left luggage

If you’ve checked out of your hotel but have time before your flight, or you’re on a short stopover in Dubai, deposit your luggage at the airport, leaving you free to explore the city without being weighed down by bags.

The left luggage facility, which is in the Arrivals area of Emirates Terminal 3, can be used by both arriving and departing passengers.

Charges per bag:

  • Standard bag (maximum dimensions of 21 by 24 by 11 inches): AED 25 for 12 hours.
  • Nonstandard bag (larger than 21 by 24 by 11 inches): AED 30 for 12 hours.
  • Valuables: AED 30 for 12 hours.
