Customers of Emirates who are planning journeys to or from any of the airline’s routes in Africa will be pleased to learn that the airline’s new baggage policy allows them to bring extra luggage.
First and Business class passengers on any African route can take advantage of this. In addition, passengers may check-in up to 64kg of free luggage, which is divided into two pieces of 32kg each, irrespective of where they are travelling to or from on the Emirates worldwide network. This new Emirates baggage policy was put into effect from 9th August 2021.
Economy class travellers on Saver, Flex and Flexible Plus prices, on the other hand, are entitled to a maximum of 46kgs of free check-in luggage, which is divided into two 23kg bags. In addition, complimentary check-in luggage of up to 23kg is now available to passengers flying on Special fares.
Emirates’ new magnanimous baggage permits and streamlined free baggage policy for travel to and from Africa give passengers added ease of mind to organize and savour their journeys, whether it be required job materials, travel souvenirs or presents for dear ones.
As a leader in the airline industry, Emirates continues to develop ingenious products and services that cater to the demands of travellers. Some of its latest customer service initiatives include offering liberal and flexible booking procedures, extending its multi-risk insurance coverage, and enabling loyal customers to keep their miles and tier statuses intact.
Every stage of a customer’s travel is covered by a comprehensive set of safety procedures designed to ensure the health and well-being of all passengers on Emirates flights. Non-contact technology and digital validation capabilities have also been upgraded at the airline, giving consumers even more ways to use the IATA Travel Pass this summer.
Emirates presently provides flights to over a dozen African destinations. Emirates Airlines is sustainably expanding its operations as international borders are reopened and travel restrictions are eased. However, customers are still encouraged to check current government travel restrictions in their country of origin and make sure they meet the travel requirements of their final destination before embarking on the trip.
Emirates airlines have restored passenger flights to almost 120 locations, restoring over 90% of the airlines’ pre-pandemic network. As a result, travellers may enjoy faster and smoother connections to North and South America as well as Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific via Dubai’s international air hubs.
