Gulf Air Expands International Sales with APG IET

Gulf Air, the national airline of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has signed up with APG to benefit from their latest ticketing solution APG IET being a worldwide solution for airlines wishing to develop their global sales by interlining. Through APG IET, Gulf Air will become ticketable by thousands of additional travel agents in BSPs (billing and settlement plans) where the airline is not present and in combination with airlines with whom they do not directly interline. APG IET will facilitate and bring high yield sales from brand new markets and act as a suitable addition to Gulf Air’s global distribution strategy.

Mr. Krešimir Kučko, Gulf Air’s Chief Executive Officer said: “This is an important milestone for Gulf Air to be available in more markets that currently not served by the airline and without offline GSAs. The APG IET solution will enable us to sell more tickets by interlining with many airlines around the world and giving our customers a wide and varied choice to fly to more places”.

Richard Burgess, President of the APG Network, commented: “We are delighted to welcome such a prestigious carrier as Gulf Air to our APG IET platform and are looking forward to working closely with Gulf Air to grow their international sales”.

Gulf Air currently flies to 48 destinations in 27 countries and in codeshare with more than 10 global airline partners.
