Dubai Emirates airline has announced changes to its check-in baggage rules according to which size does matter.

The new rules came into effect on November 15.

An Emirates spokesperson told XPRESS: “Individual items with total dimensions exceeding 300cm (118 inches) cannot be transported as checked baggage, and must be sent as cargo or freight. There are no exceptions to this rule. The standard free baggage allowance for all Emirates destinations (excluding Canada, North or South America) as per the weight concept is 30kg for economy class, 40kg for business class and 50kg for first class.”

For tickets issued before November 15, bags that range 300-400cm may be accepted in exceptional cases. But passengers need to obtain an approval from Emirates at least seven working days before travel. If the free baggage allowance is exceeded, normal excess charges would also apply.
