We provide our customers with some of the most generous baggage allowances in the industry. If your baggage still exceeds the free baggage allowances, there maybe a special offer for your destination. Please check with the nearest Gulf Air Office or your local Travel Agent. Otherwise, a competitive charge will be levied at the airport by our Customer Service staff.

If you are making your entire journey on Gulf Air Operated flights,  the following excess baggage rates apply. This depends on the 'zone' of your origin and destination within the entire Gulf Air network. You can calculate it yourself and plan it ahead to suit your travel budget.

If you are travelling with other airlines on your Gulf Air ticket, standard IATA baggage rates will apply. Our Check-in Agents will be able to assist you with this. The below unique and competitive rates do not apply to codeshare flights operated by partner airlines or flights to and from USA & Canada.
