Dubai International Airport Introduces New Baggage Policy


If you are planning on travelling to or through any of the Dubai Airports, you might want to learn a new way of packing your baggage as Dubai Airport Authorities are putting in place strict baggage rules.

The new rules which will come into effect on March 8, 2017 prohibit irregular shaped bags, oversized bags, round bags and all bags that do not have a flat surface.

According to the Vice President of Terminal Operations at Dubai International, Ali Angizeh, "Dubai International provides some of the most sophisticated baggage systems in the world,"

"However, even the most technologically advanced systems can be disrupted by irregular shaped or oversized bags. Bags that are round or do not have a flat surface of any kind are by far the largest source of baggage jams.

"These jams can shut down sections of our system, delay baggage delivery to the aircraft and inconvenience our customers," he said.

According to the rules, round bags that do not have a flat surface will not be checked-in.

Dubai Airports has also advised all airlines operating into the airport of the new regulations that will take place next month.

"Passengers, who show up at the airport with non-compliant baggage, will also be given the option to have it repacked in boxes for a fee."

Stretching 140 kilometres and covering a surface area of 75 football fields, DXB's baggage handling system is among the largest in the world. It has 15,000 trays and is powered by 21,000 motors.

Dubai International Airport handled approximately 9.3 million bags in January this year. A bag spends an average of 29 minutes in the baggage system at DXB.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
