Bag Shape

Dubai Airport Luggage Rules 2019

All check-in bags should have one flat surface. Round, irregular shaped, and long-strapped bags are not allowed inside the flight as it can cause blockages and hence delays the handling process.
Make sure you take a properly sealed rectangular-shaped luggage, flat bottom handbags, or boxes while you travel, else you will be subjected to stoppages or cancellation.

Bag weight


Only two pieces of baggage are allowed for international travel, with the total weight not exceeding 32kg. However, it varies by airline. Consult and clarify this with the airline you are traveling to avoid further confusions.

Baggage larger than 90cm long, 75cm high and 60cm wide should be checked on oversized baggage counter as it won’t be accepted in the standard baggage belt.

Hand luggage

Airlines accept two types of bags- a shoulder bag (purse, laptop bag, backpack) and a small cabin bag. The cabin bag should have a maximum length of 56 cm, the width of 45 cm and a depth of 25 cm.


The liquid items should be sealed in a plastic bag and can’t be more than 100 ml.
