“At Emirates we always focus on how we can give our customers the best value for money through award winning products and services, both in the air and on the ground. The increased free baggage allowance is another compelling reason for travelers to fly with Emirates.
It will enable them to carry even more goods, whether for personal or business reasons, on their journeys from Africa to points across our global network and back,” says Orhan Abbas, Emirates Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Africa.
This follows good news for travelers or globetrotters that the airline will now increase free baggage for airlines three cabin classes on outbound African flights that began last month April.
The baggage allowance will be applicable for all return Emirates’ flights commencing from Algeria, Angola, Ivory Coast, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Mauritius, Nigeria, Senegal, Seychelles, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe to Emirates network.
Simply put-you can travel with more bags without worrying about the cost.
This will apply at all passengers/customers traveling US, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
Continued Abbas: “With more than 370 flights a week between Dubai and the 22 passenger destinations we serve in Africa, the continent is a very important region for Emirates, and we believe the new allowance will further strengthen trade and tourism connectivity between Africa and our worldwide network.”
Economy Class customers will get a new baggage allowance of two bags weighing up to 23kg each, taking the current weight allowance from 30kg to 46kg, while Business Class increases to two bags of 32kg each, taking the current 40kg to 64kg.
