What is my allowance for checked baggage?

Economy Class customers can check in up to 35kg depending on the fare type, Business Class passengers 40kg and First Class passengers up to 50kg. Passengers in all three classes can check in up to 10 pieces of baggage as long as it stays within the checked weight limit for their cabin class.

These weights do not apply to itineraries involving North, Central or South America – you can read our dedicated weight and piece FAQ for more information. In addition, different baggage rules may apply on flights operated by other airlines.

If you have calculated your allowance to be over 32kg (71lb), please note that Dubai Civil Aviation prohibits the acceptance of any one piece of baggage weighing more than 32kg (71lb), into, out of or via Dubai International airport.
