Gulf Air, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier, recently entered into a strategic business alliance with Faysal Bank Limited, one of the leading banks in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, in a move to further facilitate air travel for the bank’s credit and debit card holders.
Faysal Bank Limited customers, when using the bank’s credit and debit cards to book or purchase Gulf Air flight on the airline’s official website (gulfair.com) and at Gulf Air sales offices, will now enjoy generous fare reductions on both the airline’s premium Falcon Gold and Economy Class cabins.
Commenting on the agreement, Mr. Muhammad Saleem Motiwala, Gulf Air Country Manager Pakistan said: “We are committed to serving the Pakistan market, as we have done since our first entry in 1960, in a variety of ways. Accordingly, we are delighted to partner with Faysal Bank Limited, a leading financial institute in Pakistan. This alliance not only has huge potential for our organization but shall also be of great benefit and convenience to travelers from Pakistan to the Middle East and beyond, travelling with Gulf Air. We look forward to embarking on this relationship and providing greater opportunities for our valued customers to experience our product and service offering.”
On this occasion, Mr. Fouad Farrukh – Faysal Bank Limited Head of Retail Banking said: “This business alliance between two leading brands is the next step in Faysal Bank’s long term plans to leverage its strengths for the benefits of our customers. We at Faysal Bank Limited will continue to strive to build loyalty by offering innovative products and benefits to further add value to the customer experience.”

Taking the airline’s total Pakistan destinations up to 07, Multan and Faisalabad have now supplemented Gulf Air’s service to five cities in Pakistan: Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad, Peshawar and Sialkot.
