Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, recently announced that university students traveling to/from Larnaca from/to Athens will be allowed one extra checked-in bag on board in addition to their free baggage allowance.
The extra bag must not exceed 23kgs and students are required to present a valid university ID card.
New students that do not have their student IDs yet will be allowed the extra baggage once a valid university acceptance letter and/or student visa is presented at the check-in counter.
The additional baggage allowance is only applicable on Gulf Air-operated flights.
The Athens-Larnaca flight operates Mondays and Fridays with the airline’s Airbus A320neo aircraft, which features 16 Falcon Gold seats and 120 economy class seats.

The return flight from Larnaca departs at 8:45am on Mondays and 12:55pm on Fridays and arrives in Athens at 10:25am and 2:45pm respectively.
