Gulf Air Launches New Mobile App for iOS & Android Smartphones

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has launched a new mobile app for iOS and Android smartphones allowing users to manage their Gulf Air trips and book flights, check-in online, pre-select seats, monitor flight status, buy Falcon Gold lounge access and excess baggage – all on the go.

The new app, which is available in Apple Store and Google Play, will be a one-stop-shop for Gulf Air passengers to access a number of facilities and services conveniently from their handhelds wherever they are. The app is designed to be a user-friendly platform with easy steps to perform common travellers’ needs through various personal devices.

Gulf Air’s Chief Commercial Officer Mr. Vincent Coste said: “At this day and age the importance of technology is at its highest as customers are becoming more and more tech-savvy and we are happy to cater for their needs with the launch of our mobile app. We invite our passengers to download the app and interact with its multi functions. We will continue to develop and add more features in the future to provide a smooth and seamless travel experience for everyone”.

The airline has defined 2018 as the #YearOfChange as it involved many changes to the business such as new brand, new livery, new fleet, new uniform, new destinations and a new strategy. Gulf Air received 5 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and 1 Airbus A320neo aircraft in 2018 and launched flights to six new destinations: Bangalore and Calicut in India, Alexandria and Sharm El Shaikh in Egypt, Casablanca in Morocco and Baku in Azerbaijan.
