Gulf Air’s in-flight service team treats every passenger as if they are the only passenger on board, by adding a warm welcome to the superb facilities available. This unique service ethic saw Gulf Air awarded Best Passenger Service airline 1995 by international aviation magazine Air Transport World.

The highly-trained crew comprise more than 60 nationalities and offer a unique perception of the multi-national nature of the airline’s passenger base. Gulf Air believes that these factors, combined with an extensive upgrading of in-flight facilities and the gradual implementation of new ideas and improvements has taken its in-flight service from better to best.

Gulf Air operates First, Business and Economy classes on all its flights. Quality, innovation and tradition are the bywords of in-flight service. Following a pre-flight aperitif, First and Business Class passengers choose from dishes created by Confrerie de la Chaine des Rotisseurs chefs, served on fine bone china. Economy Class passengers are offered three main courses and Gulf Air remains the only international airline to offer fresh fruit and liqueurs after dinner in the Economy cabin.

A range of Special Meals that cater to passengers particular requirements, whether religious, dietary, medical or just personal preference are available with prior notice.

Newly designed crockery and cutlery in all classes indicate an attention to detail and quality that pervades the entire in-flight experience. A welcome touch are the separate male and female overnight kits in First Class full of useful accessories, brand name toiletries and two aromatherapy oils, one to relax the other to invigorate.
