Excess Baggage Redemption

Note: Excess Baggage - Piece

Our newly revised baggage policy will take effect on Sunday 28 October 2018, the baggage allowance will vary depending on your ticket fare family, Falconflyer membership and final destination.
Passengers with tickets purchased prior to 28 October 2018 for travel after the policy change effective date, will not be impacted and the ticket terms will be applied.

Don't worry about your excess baggage. Now, you can redeem your Falconflyer miles for excess baggage at any airport when flying on Gulf Air flights.
