If you need to check in baggage

You can check in your baggage at the flydubai check-in desk up to 3 hours before take-off, but no later than 60 minutes before take-off

Economy class

If you’re travelling in economy class and you’ve already bought a 20 kg, 30 kg or 40 kg baggage allowance in advance, you just have to put your bags on the scales and pick up your boarding pass.

If you haven’t bought your baggage allowance in advance, you can pay to check in your baggage at the airport rate, provided there’s enough space on the flight.

You can pre-buy a baggage allowance at a discount up to 4 hours before your flight using manage booking, or through one of our call centres or through one of our travel partners.

Business class

If you’re travelling in business class, you can check in up to 40 kg of baggage. You may also be able to purchase additional baggage allowance provided there’s enough space on the flight. To save time and money call the call centres before you travel.

What documents will I need to travel?

  • Your booking confirmation 
  • valid passport
  • valid visa (if you need one for the country you’re travelling to)
  • Any necessary health certificates (for example, if you’re over 27 weeks pregnant)
  • If someone else has booked your flight for you using their credit/debit card, you’ll need to show us a photocopy of their passport and either a photocopy of the front of the credit/debit card they used to make the booking or the credit/debit card itself 

If you’re not sure what travel documents you need, you can find out by contacting the embassy or consulate of the country you’re flying to.

How do I get a UAE visa?

We can help you get a UAE visa. To find out more, see UAE visas.

Can children fly unaccompanied?

We’re sorry, but children under 12 are only allowed to fly if they’re accompanied by a parent or a guardian who is at least 16 years of age on the same booking.

Can I fly while I’m pregnant?

Yes, but if you're more than 27 weeks pregnant, you’ll need a medical certificate to be able to fly. You won’t be able to fly if you’re over 35 weeks pregnant. If you're expecting a multiple birth such as twins or triplets, you won't be able to fly after your 32nd week.
