Up to 20kg of additional checked baggage on certain routes.
DUBAI, U.A.E. – Emirates is seeking to remove some of the stress out of packing for a trip by increasing baggage allowances.
Already known to offer generous allowances of 30kg in Economy Class, the airline is enabling you to take even more of your wardrobe with you or extra gifts for family and friends.
For travel on or before 31st July, Emirates is granting an extra 10kg to Bangladesh and India and an additional 20kg to Pakistan as part of a special Take More This Summer promotion.
“Despite our baggage allowances being amongst the most generous in the airline industry, people still want more, particularly on certain routes and at certain times of the year,” said Majid Al Mualla, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations (Gulf, Middle East & Iran). “With our special summer campaign, hopefully, we can remove some of that packing and airport stress by increasing the complimentary baggage allowance.”
Silver, Gold and Platinum Emirates Skywards Members also have the opportunity to carry even more when travelling to Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. Silver members can enjoy an extra 12kg, Gold Members an extra 16kg and Platinum Members an additional 20kg.
On top of this offer, customers can save time at the airport and benefit from a further 30 per cent saving on additional prepaid excess baggage by purchasing online.
A recent survey by LV travel insurance found that UK holidaymakers have spent more than £400 million (AED 2.19 billion) on excess baggage charges in the past five years.
