Gulf Air check-in

Does Gulf Air offer online check-in?

Gulf Air offers Web Check-in, the best way to check in and save time at the airport. For passengers with checked baggage, Baggage Drop dedicated counters are available at the airport, so there is no need to queue. Passengers traveling with hand luggage only can proceed directly to the departure gate, with the boarding pass they have printed themselves (except where airport authorities do not allow so).

What is the check-in deadline for Gulf Air flights?

For Gulf Air flights, the check-in deadline is 60 minutes before departure, unless specified otherwise.

With Early Check-in, passengers departing from Bahrain on any Gulf Air flight (except to London) and in any class have the option to check in at the airport up to 24 hours prior to their departure time. Normal passenger and baggage check-in procedures will apply, and boarding passes will be issued. To check in early (on behalf of the group/family), a traveling member of the group must present to the check-in counter with all valid documents for the entire traveling party. Passengers using Early Check-in must return to the airport and proceed directly to the departure gate 60 minutes prior to the departure time of their flight.
