The recent civil unrest in Bahrain did cause the flag carrier to bear a loss in the beginning of 2011. Passenger booking dropped and the airline had to release some of its staff. However thing turned around in May 2011 and the passenger bookings have increased. To retain regular passengers and to encourage new passengers to fly on it, Gulf Air offers discounts on a number of its flights. In fact some of the discounts are the best that you can get on any world class airline.
Gulf Air has also recently invested in Sabre airlines reservation system. This system is very popular and in use with a number of the leading airlines of the world. The entire flight booking system is automated and seats are allotted and confirmed in real time. Passengers can book their flights, confirm them and check their status and can cancel them also. As the passenger booking system is automated once a seat gets cancelled it’s automatically allotted to the first passenger on the waiting list. If there is any priority passenger the seat is allocated to them. A passenger can submit his or her email address and receive a status update and get to know when their seat has been confirmed. The new passenger reservation system handles end to end customer services solution. Right from reservations, check-in, and load planning, ticketing and departure control can be handled by this system.
Gulf Air flies to 45 destinations across Asia, Middle East, Africa and Europe and they have their sales agents across the countries that they fly to.

Gulf Air tries to ensure that its passenger bookings system is easy and hassle free.
