Emirates 2022 Baggage Allowance


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 Hand 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 / 15 lbs.

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  of cabin baggage.

Need to purchase a suitable hand luggage case for your upcoming flight? We recommend this suitcase, available on Amazon, as they are approved by most airlines.

Emirates Excess Baggage


Excess baggage charges on an Emirates flight will again depend on your fare and also your destination. Emirates provide an online baggage calculator to help you determine your excess baggage costs. These prices can vary on a number of factors.

My Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative


Emirates offers a very generous complimentary baggage allowance for all passengers. However, purchasing excess baggage on an Emirates flight can be very expensive and increase the overall cost of your journey considerably.

It, therefore, makes sense to seek a more cost-effective alternative – such as a low-cost luggage shipping service. That’s where My Baggage comes in.

My Baggage provides an excellent luggage shipping service to over 200+ countries at a great low cost (starting at £16.99). Our fast and convenient luggage shipping services allow you to travel hands-free. It means you’ll save yourself some time at the airport when you don’t have to check-in your bags, no waiting around at luggage carousels on the other side and ultimately, one less thing to worry about whilst you travel.

Customers receive full door to door luggage collection and delivery as well as access to online tracking. We offer fast delivery times and great customer support.

Mostly everything went well

Everything went well. The only issue was that DHL didn't pick up the bags when we understood they were going to. It was very difficult to contact them. However when My Baggage was contacted they got onto it right away. Relieved my stress for sure.

Everything went as planned

Everything went as planned. I am happy that my daughter received her parcels at the University of Bath as planned before she arrives. The cost of this services was very affordable and I will use them again.

Grateful

This ended up being a blessing in disguise for our travel. We had all 3 of our flights rescheduled the day of international travel, had we not shipped our bags, we would be embarking on a 30 day journey with no luggage. The only comment non positive was the inability to definitely pinpoint the time of pickup.

Excellent service

After a Google search I came across My Baggage. The booking process was simple but took a bit of effort to complete the custom form. Option to select pick up & drop off dates. Arrived a day before the expected date. Seemed a bit expensive but overall worth it.
