Due to recent security concerns, additional security screening measures are implemented at Bahrain International Airport starting 8 July 2014.
Passengers traveling to the United Kingdom will be requested to power-up their hand-held mobile phones and all electronic devices larger than pocket-size to demonstrate functionality. All protective covers and cases of these devices will be removed for close inspection. Travellers will also be requested to undergo an additional security measure requiring items to be checked at the departure gate.
For additional information, or to answer any queries, passengers are recommended to contact the Gulf Air World Wide Contact Centre on +973 17373737.
