Gulf Air has come a long way since it launched services in 1950 as Gulf Aviation Company. Now fully owned by the Kingdom of Bahrain through Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company, the airline started as a small scale commuter service, serving the oil fields of the Gulf and some regional customers. Today, Gulf Air is a major international airline serving over 30 destinations worldwide. However, whether it is 10 or 100 destinations, seven seater planes or the latest state of the art jets, their goal has remained constant – a commitment to the latest aviation technology and an adherence to traditional Arabian hospitality.
With the main hub being Bahrain, Gulf air is offering many solutions in the Middle-East, India and Pakistan, operating numerous widebody flights to destinations like Jeddah, Riyadh, Islamabad and Lahore.
