In general, Egyptair will allow checked luggage of up to 32kg or 70lbs in weight and dimensions of 158cm or 62 inches for all passengers who chose to travel with the airline. These standard weights and dimensions apply to every piece of luggage carried on board but can be varied to reflect the class one in traveling on, the route and age group. In the event that a passenger exceeds the weight outlined, they will be required to repackage their luggage and ship it as freight.

For instance, Adults and children traveling in the First and Business classes on the international routes will be allowed a maximum of two pieces of luggage of the standard weight and dimensions specified and two 8kg weighing hand luggage while those traveling in the economy class will only carry two checked baggage weighing 23kg or 50 lbs with the standard dimensions but only one hand luggage weighing 8kg.

However, for adults and children traveling on the domestic routes on the first and business classes, only one piece of checked baggage with the specified standard weight and dimensions is approved. An additional two hand items of luggage weighing 8kg are allowed. But when it comes to those traveling in the economy class on domestic routes, one piece of checked baggage of 23kgs or 50lbs in weight and the standard dimension is allowed. For passengers in this class, only a single hand luggage of 8kg is accepted.

For infants traveling on the airline to or from Canada and the USA, the maximum weight allowed for each checked baggage is 23kgs or 50lbs with dimensions of 115cm or 45 inches and only one fold up collapsible stroller is approved as hand luggage.

To begin with, the liquids must be in containers limited to 100ml in volume and should be carried in a clear plastic bag of one liter, this is per every passenger on board. Should the liquids exceed 100 ml then they should be packed with the rest of the luggage. However, any liquids purchased on duty-free shops will be acceptable as hand luggage.

It is important to note that passengers to both the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are forbidden from carrying certain medicinal drugs as they are illegal in the two countries. These drugs include Rovamesan and Tramadol. Other restrictions on the baggage are flammable gasses.
