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 both cabin and checked baggage on all our flights.

For cabin 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. Please note you can’t charge the bag on board.

For checked baggage

Smart bags are allowed as checked-in 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.

Please be aware that smart bags with built-in batteries that can’t be removed are banned both as cabin and checked in baggage.
