Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, commenced operations in 1950, becoming one of the first commercial airlines established in the Middle East. Today, Gulf Air is a major international carrier serving 47 cities in 26 countries spanning three continents.
The airline operates double daily flights or more to 10 regional cities in addition to select destinations in the Indian Subcontinent and Europe from its hub at Bahrain International Airport.
Gulf Air currently serves all its destinations with a combination wide and narrow body fleet totalling 32 modern aircraft. The modern fleet will herald a new era for Gulf Air as it continues to enhance its product and service offering. The airline is receiving 39 new Boeing (787-9 Dreamliner) and Airbus (A320neo and A321neo ) aircraft from 2018 to 2023. Renowned for its traditional Arabian hospitality, evidenced by the airline’s signature family and business-friendly products, Gulf Air is committed to being an industry leader and developing products and services that reflect the evolving needs and aspirations of its passengers.
Gulf Air connects Bahrain to the world and, as such, is a key national infrastructure asset, serving as a powerful driver for the economy and supporting the Kingdom’s on-going economic growth.
Gulf Air is wholly owned by Mumtalakat and falls under the umbrella of Gulf Air Group Holding Company.
