Baggage policies and rules

Can I carry smart bags on Emirates flights?

"Smart" or "innovative" baggage includes bags with motors, power banks, GPS, GSM, Bluetooth, RFID, or Wi-Fi technology. There are restrictions on carrying smart bags with lithium batteries as either carry-on or checked baggage on all our flights.

For carry-on baggage

Smart bags within the cabin size and weight allowance for your route are allowed in the cabin as long as the battery is removable. The battery can stay in the bag as longs as the bag is powered off completely. You can’t charge the bag on board.

For checked baggage

Smart bags are allowed as checked baggage if the battery is removed and carried in the cabin and the baggage is within the checked baggage size and weight allowances for your route.

Smart bags with built-in batteries that can’t be removed are banned in both carry-on and checked baggage.
