Dubai Airports will soon introduce a new baggage rule to help improve service, reduce the risk of mishandling and enhance the performance of its check-in and baggage operation at Dubai International.
“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 over-sized 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.” said Ali Angizeh, Vice President of Terminal Operations at Dubai International.
What are the rules?
1. No round bags
2. No bags without flat surface
3. No irregular shaped bags
4. No oversized bags
5. Bags that do not meet the criterion will have to be repacked in boxes for a fee
Accordingly, the new rule will see bags without flat surfaces rejected at check-in effective March 8, 2017. Dubai Airports has advised all airlines operating into DXB of the imminent change and has updated its website, mobile app and signage across the airport to help raise awareness.
