Gulf Air upgrades baggage allowance for golfers

Gulf Air

Gulf Air has enhanced its baggage policy for golf players the world over to now include one golf bag over and above their baggage allowance.

The new policy has been introduced in response to an increasing demand from golfers who fly to attend various golf events within the global Gulf Air network.

CEO, Gulf Air, Krešimir Kučko stated: “Gulf Air is happy to further enhance its baggage policy to make it easier for our passengers who travel with their golf equipment. With our expanding network and appealing frequencies, many golfers prefer to fly with us to attend golf events and tournaments regionally and globally and now it’s time to reward them with additional complimentary baggage allowance.”


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 15kg or less.

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