Quick Guide on GCC Airlines Baggage Allowance

Most of our kababayans in the Middle East usually take their annual vacation during Christmas as they want to celebrate it with their love ones. Don’t forget those most crave food, lechon and suman during this holidays.

As early as possible, we plan our trip and started to book our airline tickets. Many things are taken into consideration when purchasing a ticket, first is the cost, is it a connecting flight or direct flight and we are also particular on how many kilos is free and allowed per passenger.

Avoid over baggage when travelling so that you can save time and money. It is a good practice that we make ourselves aware of the airline baggage allowance.
