Gulf Air has extended its online offer to three more destinations – Doha, Muscat and Mumbai. This new offer follows the earlier "web only" offer to six destinations.

"We made 5,000 seats available and would like to extend this offer to a few more destinations at even more competitive prices, Gulf Air Chief Strategy Officer, Tero Taskila said.

"We will make these promotions a permanent feature. Every week, we will come up with more exciting fares to our current and new destinations. These deals are available only on the website, every Friday," he said.

Björn Näf, Chief Executive Officer for Bahrain's national carrier, has been instrumental in revamping the airline's network with lower connection times, better service to key destinations, along with improvements on on-board products, customer service on the ground and punctuality. The new network, based on a "wave" model, offers as many as 588 flights every week in the Middle East with more non-stop flights than any other airline.

The airline is also planning to re-fleet itself over the next five years to further strengthen its presence. It signed a deal worth nearly $6 billion (Dh22bn) with Boeing to purchase up to 24 Boeing 787 aircraft and another deal with Airbus for 35 aircraft, including A320s and A330s.
