We calculated hydrogen recombination line luminosities (H-$\alpha$, Paschen-$\beta$ and Brackett-$\gamma$) from three dimensional thermo-hydrodynamical simulations of forming planets from 1 to 10 Jupiter-masses. We explored various opacities to estimate the line emissions with extinction in each cases. When realistic opacities are considered, only lines from planets $\ge$10 Jupiter-mass can be detected with current instrumentation, highlighting that from most planets one cannot expect detectable emission. This might explain the very low detection rate of H-$\alpha$ from forming planets from observations. While the line emission comes from both the forming planet and its circumplanetary disk, we found that only the disk component could be detected due to extinction. We examined the line variability as well, and found that it is higher for higher mass planets. Furthermore, we determine for the first time, the parametric relationship between the mass of the planet and the luminosity of the hydrogen recombination lines, as well as the equation between the accretion luminosity and hydrogen recombination line luminosities. These relationships for planets appear to be steeper than the analogous relation for young stars, suggesting that the accretion process around planets proceeds differently than around stars.
