Baggage allowances

What is my allowance for checked baggage?

Emirates has one of the world's most generous baggage policies.

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

These allowances do not apply to itineraries that include North, Central, or South America. Read our weight and piece concept 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 more than 32 kg (71 lb), please note that Dubai Civil Aviation prohibits the acceptance of any single piece of baggage weighing more than 32 kg (71 lb) for flights into, out of, or via Dubai International airport.
