GF celebrates 55 years with flyers
April 2005 155

Gulf Air has broken with tradition by giving birthday presents rather than receiving them on the occasion of the airline turning 55 last month.

For a 55-day period, which lasts till April 30, members of the Gulf Air frequent-flyer programme, travelling in either First or Business Class, will receive five times the normal number of Bonus miles. Full fare First Class and Business Class passengers will receive a 1,000 and 500 per cent bonus respectively if they book and travel during the 55-day period, said Louise Robertson, Gulf Air’s manager, loyalty programmes, “Gulf Air officially celebrated being 55 on March 24, but as this is such a landmark birthday we wanted to share the occasion with our loyal customers over a longer period. As a result, Business Class flight from Bahrain to London will earn a total of 37,848 miles – immediately enough for a free trip to either Istanbul Cairo, or Athens. The same trip in First Class will award you 69,388 miles – enough for a free return Economy Class trip to one of 6 exotic Far East destinations. And members have 10 years in which to use their accumulated miles,” explained Robertson.
Robertson also announced that Gulf Air has introduced a Gold Service Desk, where dedicated staff provide priority responses to Gold Member enquiries via telephone, postal mail or e-mail.
