Gulf Air is the flag carrier and main airline of Bahrain and serves both Gulf and worldwide destinations. With extensive codeshare agreements and a membership of the oneworld alliance, the airline offers a huge amount of services to customers. The history of Gulf Air began in the 1940s with an air taxi service before a company under the name of 'Gulf Aviation' became a private company in 1950. Shortly after this, four Emirate states took control of parts of the company and the name was changed to Gulf Air. With a large fleet size and destination network, the airline enjoyed healthy expansion. Following financial difficulties, enforced budget cuts and spending restrictions, Qatar and Abu Dhabi withdrew from the company. Today, Gulf Air flies to 45 destinations around the world, primarily in the local region as well as Europe, Asia and Africa. The airline has codeshare agreements with American Airlines and KLM along with several other partners to vastly expand the network of supported destinations. The Gulf Air Frequent Flyer Programme is a bonus scheme for regular customers which provides various points and benefits along with Air Miles which can be redeemed against future flights.
