Emirates Airline has increased its free baggage allowances provided to passengers. The change is effective for all tickets issued on or after 4 May 2009.

The new, more generous allowance has been implemented across the airline's extensive network of over 100 destinations globally- 30kg for Economy Class passengers, 40kg for Business and 50kg for First - giving Emirates' passengers the flexibility to carry significantly more baggage.

Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President Revenue Optimisation, said, "Emirates has moved to these new free baggage levels to further demonstrate our commitment to putting the passenger first. By offering travellers the flexibility to carry significantly more baggage we will be allowing them to take more gifts for family and friends or take advantage of the outstanding shopping in Dubai and across the extensive network of Emirates destinations."

Gold and Silver Members of Skywards, Emirates frequent flyer programme are entitled to an additional baggage allowance of 16 kgs over their ticketed allowance for Gold members and additional 12 kgs for Silver. Codeshare passengers travelling on Emirates operated flights are also eligible for the revised free baggage allowances.

Emirates' regular rates will be applied to baggage in excess of these new allowances.
