Oman: Leaving Gulf Air

Omani blogger Muscati discusses reports that Oman will be pulling out of Gulf Air – once a regional airline but owned by Bahrain and Oman.
“While it is understandable that Oman is thinking about improving its own airline rather than continuing to spend on Gulf Air, which has been an ailing airline for so long that no one really remembers when exactly it was that this company was ever in good health. Still Gulf Air has assets that other regional airlines would kill for: landing rights all and a destination portfolio accumulated from its 50 years of operation that no other startup airline has,” he explains.

  • Hello Amira,

    Have a look at my website regarding Gulf Air, I am hoping it will lead to some marked change. I truly do hope that it will improve as I have to use them extensively
