Emirates increases baggage allowance on all Africa routes

Emirates Airlines has increased its free baggage allowance for customers travelling on all its flights originating from destinations across the African continent. Beginning from today (15 April) all Emirates customers travelling in any of the airline’s three cabin classes on outbound African flights are to benefit from the increase in free baggage allowance based on the piece concept (individual piece of luggage).
According to the company in a statement made available to Sundiata Post, “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. First Class customers will get a baggage allowance of two bags weighing up to 32 kg each, up from the current 50 kg to 64kg. In addition, infants will be entitled one piece of luggage up to 23kg.
“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. Irrespective of the point of sale, the piece concept will apply for the entire journey.”
Orhan Abbas, Emirates Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Africa, said that the increased free baggage allowance was another compelling reason for travellers to fly with Emirates and enable passengers to carry even more goods, whether for personal or business reasons, on their journeys from Africa to points across our global network and back.
“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, particularly the US, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific,” he added.
Sundiata Post gathered that customers on all Emirates flights between its hub Dubai and the 22 destinations in Africa also enjoy Emirates’ award winning ice entertainment system
