From Feb, 4, 2019, Emirates long known generous baggage policy is changing slightly. However, they are providing airfare options to increase your baggage limits.
Emirates sells Economy class tickets in four fare families: Special, Saver, Flex and Flex Plus. From February 4, 2019, Special and Saver tickets will see their baggage allowance go down by 5 kg each. The new baggage allowance will be:
- Special: 20 Kg (tickets issued before February 4) | 15 Kg (tickets issued after February 4)
- Saver: 25 Kg (tickets issued before February 4) | 20 Kg (tickets issued after February 4)
- Flex: 30 Kg
- Flex Plus: 35 Kg
For those travelling to and from the Americas, where the piece concept applies, the Special fare will now only get 1 piece instead of two, again, for those when the tickets are booked on February 4, 2019.
Of course, if you are an Emirates Skywards member, you will get your elite baggage allowance on top of the regular baggage as well.
