Gulf Air

Full Service Carrier
International and Domestic
In service
Country/Territory: Bahrain


Founded in 1950, Gulf Air is the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Despite fragmentation from its halcyon days when it also served as flag carrier for the UAE, Oman and Qatar, it remains one of the larger airlines in the Middle East region, serving over 40 destinations across Africa, Asia and Europe from its main base at Bahrain International Airport.

However, it is having severe problems adjusting to the new highly competitive environment, based in a small O&D market and continues to incur large annual losses.
