New Baggage Rules in Force at Dubai Airport

Operators in the travel industry have advised passengers flying out of Dubai International to adhere to the new baggage regulations that came into effect on Wednesday to avoid delays.

Starting Wednesday, bags that don’t have at least one flat surface will be rejected at check-in, including irregularly shaped and oversized items, as they can bog down the luggage-handling process.

“Customers are being asked to not bring round bags to Dubai International Airport as they can jam our baggage system, delay baggage delivery and inconvenience other passengers. Please ensure baggage has at least one flat surface,” the airport authority said in its latest passenger alert.

An Emirates spokesperson said the airline is also advising its customers to check its website for all baggage enquiries, to avoid confusion. “We are quite specific and detailed with our passengers when it comes to baggage dimensions even when we have exceptions.”

With the new changes announced only last week, some passengers are still likely to show up with non-compliant bags.
