National carrier of Bahrain enhances baggage allowance for all college and university students with an additional free of charge 23kg bag
Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, has announced it has enhanced baggage allowance for all college and university students with an additional free of charge 23kg bag.
The new baggage allowance is applicable to all undergraduate and postgraduate students holding a valid college or university student ID card and flying between any points within the airline’s global network.
The announcement follows a similar move earlier this year when Gulf Air increased baggage allowance for athletes allowing them to travel with their golf bags or bicycles free of charge.
“This is a great bonus for all our student passengers,” said Krešimir Kucko, Gulf Air CEO, adding: “We know that students need more luggage to carry their books, laptops, winter clothes and so on. It is always a hassle for students to carefully pack their items when travelling for the academic year.
"Now, we want to make things easier for all students by allowing one extra bag of 23 kilos for each student flying to college or returning home for the summer."
Gulf Air serves 47 cities in 26 countries with a fleet of 34 aircraft. In 2019, the airline will receive two new Dreamliners and four A320neos.
