Founded in 1950, Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, is a pioneer in the world of aviation, both on a regional and global level. Today, having amassed over 60 years of experience and expertise, the airline retains a high international standing and global renown.
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.
Recognizing the ‘family travel experience’ as an important differentiation factor in its suite of service offerings, Gulf Air has combined its hallmark Arabian hospitality with a family friendly package. As a pioneering airline, known for innovative products and services, Gulf Air introduced the world’s first Sky Nanny: a free service dedicated to the airline’s young travellers whereby Sky Nannies provide specialized attention and care, helping make flying with children a more pleasurable experience for parents and children alike. The Sky Nanny Service is available both on the ground and in the air delivering dedicated childcare service from check-in, to our Gulf Air Falcon Gold lounges, to on board the flight and disembarkation.
Gulf Air was also the first Middle East airline to introduce highly qualified and accredited in-flight Chefs to serve the airline’s premium class passengers with personalized service and diverse culinary expertise onboard select long-haul flights. Gulf Air’s SkyChef concept has, since then, received much acclaim, providing passengers with unparalleled dining service, dedicated Sky Chefs prepare tailor-made dishes based on passengers’ particular tastes and preferences. Combined with Gulf Air’s hallmark Arabian hospitality, the service provides an experience akin to a five-star restaurant, integrating elements of luxury and attention to detail with a highly diverse range and choice of European and Middle Eastern dishes combined in a contemporary style.
With dedicated Gulf Air Falcon Gold Lounges in all of Bahrain International Airport, Dubai International Airport and Heathrow Terminal 4, our passengers are well taken care of with well laid-out business, dining, lounging facilities and TV areas in addition to the added facilities of the “Quiet Lounge” which holds private sleeping rooms with comfortable beds, dimming lights and the ‘do not disturb’ option to rest in complete privacy. Passengers can stay connected with free Wi-Fi throughout the lounges, discreet power sockets at every seat and a business center that includes PCs, fax machines and printers. For families, the lounge offers a spacious family room with our SkyNannies in attendance as well as a gaming room equipped with Xbox and PlayStation units.
In fact the lounge is so appealing you may find yourself hoping for a flight delay. There’s not much chance of that happening: Gulf Air was ranked first among Middle East full service carriers for on-time-punctuality in 2013, a spot it held consistently throughout the previous year too.
Whether travelling for business or leisure, alone or accompanied, Gulf Air enhances the travel experience for every kind of traveler.
