If you’re travelling with Emirates on an upcoming flight, here’s everything you need to know about your Emirates baggage allowance, restrictions, fees and charges.

Emirates Cabin Baggage


Cabin baggage allowances on an Emirates flight will depend on your fare:

Economy: customers are permitted one piece of carry-on baggage, either a handbag or laptop bag, that may not exceed 55 x 38 x 20cm and must weigh no more than 7kg.

First Class and Business Class: customers are allowed two pieces of carry-on baggage: one briefcase plus either one handbag or one garment bag. The briefcase may not exceed 45 x 35 x 20cm; the handbag may not exceed 55 x 38 x 20cm; garment bags can be no more than 20cm thick when folded. The weight of each piece must not exceed 7kg.

Passengers travelling with infants can bring a carrycot or a collapsible stroller if there is room in the cabin if not, the item can be checked into the hold free of charge.

Note: For customers boarding in India, you are allowed one piece of carry-on baggage. The size of the carry-on baggage may not exceed 115 or 45.3 inches (length + width + height).

Note: For all flights departing from Brazil customers can carry up to 10 kilograms of cabin baggage.

Please note: This image depicts an example of economy allowance for flights within the Americas and between the US and Europe.
