Bahrain International temporarily closes long-term car park

Bahrain International Airport has closed one of its long-term car parks for the holiday season, it has been announced.

The overflow car park, which is located in Galali, will be closed from November 10. It will reopen in the coming peak seasons next year.
Travellers can still get long-term car parking in car park D, which is located behind the Mövenpick Hotel.

Parking in car park D costs BHD3 per day. Car park A, near the passenger terminal, also offers travellers short-term parking for 500 fils for the first hour, and BHD10 per day.

Bahrain Airport Company, who operate Bahrain International Airport, made the announcement on social media.

The news comes after new baggage rules came into force at the start of October which mean round and irregular shaped items, as well as those with long or loose straps, are no longer allowed.

Bahrain International’s new terminal, which will be able to handle 14 million passengers a year, is set to open in March 2020.

The 207,000 sq m terminal will be four times the size of the existing one once complete, and will have 36 passport control booths and 104 check-in counters.
