Dubai Airport Bans "Ghana Must Go" Bags


Dubai international airport has introduced a new baggage rule that will make bags without flat surfaces to be rejected at airports... which would take effect from March 8

The popular "Ghana Must Go" bag commonly used by Nigerian travellers, will be regarded as “non-compliant baggage”.

According to the vice-president of terminal operations at the Dubai International, Ali Angizeh, the irregular shaped or oversized bags could disrupt the advanced baggage systems that would soon be introduced.

He stressed that the new rule would reduce the risk of baggage mishandling at check-in counters.

Angizeh said “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 oversized 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.

“We are trying to get the message out there as much as possible. Passengers, who show up at the airport with non-compliant baggage, will also be given the option to have it re-packed in boxes for a fee.”

He said airports have notified airlines operating into Dubai of the imminent change and has updated its websites to create more awareness
