Carry 10kg extra on Emirates economy flights to India, Pakistan

Dubai: So you pack your bags, weigh them on that hand-held scale you have at home -- which you only use before travelling -- and find that you still have a couple of kilos to go before you hit the 30kg mark.

You stuff in a few extra things, and the bag now weighs 32kg, two kilos more than the standard economy class checked-in baggage limit.

And the cycle continues...

For travellers such as you, Dubai-based Emirates has introduced a special offer, where you can carry 10-15kg extra on economy-class tickets to select destinations.

Passengers flying to Abidjan, Accra, Dakar, Entebbe, Harare, Luanda, Lagos, Lusaka, Manila, Cairo, Casablanca, Nairobi, Addis Ababa, Algiers Guangzhou and Dar Es Salaam can now carry up to 15kg extra, on all Emirates flights.

Passengers flying to Karachi, Dhaka, Sylhet, Chittagong, Mumbai, Kochi, Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai, Jakarta, Cebu, Clark and Colombo will also be able to carry 10kg extra baggage with them, but only on select flights.

Offer is valid for tickets sold until September 30, 2017, and travel until December 13, 2017.
