Gulf Air, enhanced its baggage allowance for golf players to include one golf bag above their baggage allowance. The new policy has been introduced in response to increasing demand from golfers who fly to attend various golf events within the global Gulf Air network.

Gulf Air’s Chief Executive Officer Krešimir Kučko said: “Gulf Air is happy to further enhance its baggage policy to make it easier for our passengers who travel with their golf equipment, in turn rewarding golfers globally for their remarkable achievement.”

The new baggage allowance covers one golf bag containing one set of clubs, balls, one pair of golf shoes and one umbrella, which all must be held within a purpose-designed golf travel bag weighing 15 kilograms or less.

Back in October 2018, Gulf Air launched a new and simplified policy providing more choice and clarity to its passengers. The old weight concept was replaced by a harmonized concept worldwide which provided greater benefits to passengers and Falcon flyer loyalty programme members.

Currently, passengers are entitled to check in up to two bags free of charge, depending on their fare type, route and up to three bags depending on their Gulf Air Falcon flyer status.

On many routes the new concept means increased baggage allowances for customers and an instant reduction in excess baggage rates, the airlines stated.
