What Sets Gulf Airlines Apart?

Gulf Air

Gulf Air is the flag carrier airline of Bahrain, and a 3-star airline by Skytrax. The airlines started its services in 1950 as a small-scale commuter service, serving the oil fields of the Gulf and some regional customers. Now it’s a major international airline fully owned by the Kingdom of Bahrain, serving 42 destinations in 25 countries worldwide.

Gulf Air offers all customers a request for special meals to suit their dietary requirements 24 hours prior travel and a generous 30 kg baggage allowance for Economy passengers.

Gulf Air also believes in social responsibility, and in 2014 established a dedicated committee to look after the affairs of the local Bahrain community. With such firm footprints in what’s happening on the ground, Gulf Air has fast become a great competitor in Middle Eastern aviation.
