According to the global airline, effective Monday, August 9 this year, customers travelling in First and Business class on any Africa route can check in up to 64kgs of free baggage.

That is, two pieces of 32kgs each, regardless of where in the Emirates global network they are headed to or travelling from.

“Customers flying in Economy class on Saver, Flex and Flex Plus fares, can enjoy up to 46kgs of free check-in baggage allowance (two pieces of 23kgs each), while those on Special fares will have one free check-in bag of up to 23kgs.

“Whether it is essential business items, travel souvenirs or gifts for loved ones, Emirates’ new generous allowances and simplified free baggage policy for travel to and from Africa, provides customers with additional peace of mind to plan and enjoy their travels.”

The Emirates story started in 1985 when the airline launched operations with just two aircraft and today, flies the world’s biggest fleets of Airbus A380s and Boeing 777s, offering customers the comforts of the latest and most efficient wide-body aircraft in the skies.

Emirates’ continues to lead the industry with innovative products and services that address traveller needs.
