Emirates cuts baggage allowance for some passengers

Passengers booking Special or Saver tickets on economy will have their baggage allowance cut by 5kg

Dubai-based Emirates airline will be reducing the baggage allowance for some of its economy travellers from next month, it has announced.

The changes to its checked baggage policy will come into effect on February 4.

Under the changes, passengers booking Special or Saver tickets on economy will have their baggage allowance cut by 5kg with the new limit standing at 15kg and 25kg respectively.

Originally, the ticket holders were allowed to check in 20kg (Special) and 30kg (Saver) of baggage.

Those travelling by Flex and Flex Plus on economy will continue to have the 30kg and 35kg allowance, respectively.

Passengers flying first and business class will also retain their baggage limits of 50kg and 40kg respectively.

Hand luggage allowance will also remain the same at 7kg.

Tickets issued before February 4 – for travel at any date – will still follow the former baggage allowance policy.

The new weight allowances will apply to all fights, except routes to and from the Americas, and flights originating from Africa.
