Baggage and lost property

Baggage policies and rules

If I’m connecting from one Emirates flight to another, will my bags be transferred automatically?

If you’re connecting in Dubai between Emirates flights and your layover is less than 24 hours, your bags will be checked through to your final destination. That means your bags will not be available while you are in transit, unless otherwise specified by our airport staff.

This includes flights purchased on, including those bought through the advanced search option. If you wish to access your bags in Dubai, please contact us to make the correct type of booking or modify your existing booking to allow this.
