Emirates to provide much-needed extra baggage allowance for customers travelling to Lebanon

By  | 

Dubai, UAE 26 August, 2021: In a move to support its Lebanese customers, communities and diaspora around the world, Emirates will be offering extra baggage for travel to Beirut from around its network, starting this week until 30 September 2021*.

With Lebanon experiencing a severe shortage of essential goods and medicines, Emirates customers will be able to take advantage of an additional 10kg of baggage to pack extra items to support family and friends back home. The 10kg additional baggage allowance will be available on tickets booked in both Economy and Business Class from the UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Australia**.

Emirates customers travelling to Beirut via Dubai from the United States, Canada, Brazil, Zambia, Angola, Guinea, Senegal, South Africa, Ivory Coast and Ghana will be eligible to carry an additional piece of luggage totalling 23kg.

Customers can avail the additional baggage allowance for travel booked on emirates.com, Emirates sales offices, via travel agents as well as online travel agents. The baggage allowance applies to both inbound and outbound travel from Beirut.

Aligned with its commitment to drive positive impact in communities it serves around the world, Emirates last year set up a humanitarian airbridge with Lebanon, dedicating flights to deliver much needed emergency relief supplies, and partnering with recognised humanitarian organisations on the ground assisting with recovery efforts in the wake of the Port of Beirut explosions.

The airline also provided people around the world the opportunity to donate cash or pledge their Skywards Miles in exchange for cargo capacity on its flights to help those affected in a swift manner. As a result, over 160 tonnes of medical supplies, food, PPE, and other essential humanitarian items were delivered on several missions during that period.

Emirates has been serving Lebanese skies and communities since 1991. The airline currently operates two daily flights to Beirut utilising the Boeing 777-300ER.
