Oversized baggage

Carrying items larger than our standard baggage dimensions? You can take them as part of your baggage allowance and pay an oversized baggage fee. Pay US $40 each way for flights within the Middle East, between the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent and between Beijing and Nagoya. For all other flights you’ll pay US $60 each way.

Bikes, scuba diving equipment, skis, poles, ski boots, surfboards and golf bags are exempt from oversized baggage fees and can be included as part of your baggage allowance.

Any items weighing more than 32kg or longer than 300cm will not be accepted.
