Emirates, which flies daily direct from Dubai to Lusaka, has lifted its excess baggage allowance to a staggering 500kg.

The new allowance boosts opportunities for traders in goods from household items and stationery to car accessories and mobile phones, and confirms Dubai as the destination of choice for small-scale entrepreneurs looking to buy merchandise.

The generous 500kg excess baggage allowance, increased from the previous level of 150kg, is available at an additional cost, and means market traders can bring back more goods from their trips to Dubai, helping to make their businesses more efficient and prices more competitive for their customers.,

“Increased baggage allowances make perfect business sense for Emirates and its savvy entrepreneur passengers,” said Emirates Acting Country Manager for Zambia Paulos Legesse. “The new allowance is also coupled with the world class shopping facilities offered by Dubai, which is renowned as the ultimate shopping destination.”

A dedicated team of Emirates brand ambassadors will be touring the streets and markets of Lusaka this week (August 19-24) to highlight the new 500kg excess baggage allowance and explain its significance directly to thousands of traders in the city centre, Kamwala, Northmead Market, COMESA Market and City Market.

Traders can book their next trip and experience Emirates for themselves by visiting the Emirates sales office at Acacia Park, Lusaka, book online at www.emirates.com or speak to your travel agent.
