Gulf Air includes bicycles as free baggage allowance for athletes

Posted 24 April 2019 · Add Comment

Gulf Air, in a move to facilitate travel to athletes around its global network, has enhanced its baggage allowance for cyclists to include one free bicycle over and above their original ticket baggage allowance.

 

The new policy has been introduced in response to an increasing demand from athletes who fly to attend and participate in various sport events within the global Gulf Air network, The new baggage allowance covers one bicycle, which must be packaged within a purpose-designed cover, weighing 15 kilograms or less. Earlier this month Gulf Air announced that one free golf bag would be allowed for golfers.

Gulf Air’s chief executive officer Krešimir Kučko said: "Gulf Air is enhancing its baggage allowance for athletes to promote a healthy lifestyle within its customer base. By allowing athletes to take their sport equipment for free – over and above their original baggage entitlement – we help make their travel logistics and journeys much easier and hassle free.”
