Gulf Air in­tro­duces new bag­gage pol­icy

Times of Oman - - ROUND-UP -

MUS­CAT: Gulf Air, the na­tional car­rier of the King­dom of Bahrain, will launch a new and sim­pli­fied bag­gage pol­icy pro­vid­ing more choice and clar­ity to its cus­tomers. The cur­rent weight con­cept will be re­placed by a har­mo­nized piece con­cept world­wide, ef­fec­tive for all tick­ets is­sued on or af­ter Oc­to­ber 28, 2018.

The new pol­icy has been in­tro­duced to re­spond to in­di­vid­ual cus­tomer needs with greater flex­i­bil­ity.

Fal­con­flyer loy­alty

The changes will pro­vide greater ben­e­fits for Fal­con­flyer loy­alty pro­gramme mem­bers. Cus­tomers will be en­ti­tled to bring one, two or three bags free of charge, de­pend­ing on their fare type, route and Gulf Air Fal­con­flyer sta­tus. On many routes, the new con­cept means in­creased bag­gage al­lowances for cus­tomers. At the same time, ex­cess bag­gage rates have also been sim­pli­fied. In most cases, the fees for ex­cess bag­gage have been cut sig­nif­i­cantly. Cus­tomers can ben­e­fit from fur­ther re­duc­tions if they pur­chase di­rectly with Gulf Air up to 24 hours be­fore travel.

Fair and trans­par­ent

Gulf Air Chief Com­mer­cial Of­fi­cer Mr Vin­cent Coste said: “In line with in­dus­try best prac­tices, we are mov­ing to a fair and trans­par­ent bag­gage pol­icy. Gen­er­ous al­lowance will be given to pre­mium and Fal­con­flyer pas­sen­gers while we of­fer choices for cus­tomers with min­i­mum bag­gage to pay less for their tick­ets”.

Gulf Air op­er­ates dou­ble daily flights or more to se­lect des­ti­na­tions across the GCC, MENA re­gion, In­dian Sub­con­ti­nent and Europe while its net­work spans the GCC, MENA re­gion, In­dian Sub­con­ti­nent, Europe and the Far East. The air­line pro­vides seam­less con­nec­tiv­ity for pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling across its net­work via its ef­fi­cient Bahrain In­ter­na­tional Air­port hub.
