How will my baggage allowance be calculated?

Depending on your route, your baggage allowance may be calculated by piece or by weight.

On routes that include stops in North, Central, or South America, your baggage allowance will be calculated by piece. You will be allowed a set number of items, each of which must not exceed a maximum weight. Exceptions apply; please check with your local Emirates office.

If your travel starts in the United States and the first carrier on your booking is not Emirates, different rules may apply—learn more.

For all other routes, your baggage allowance will be calculated by weight. If you’re traveling in Economy Class on these routes, your baggage allowance will also depend on the type of fare you’ve purchased and when your ticket was issued.
