Bahrain’s national carrier Gulf Air, which has won awards for being the most ‘Family-Friendly’ airline, has announced a new innovative offer for families, where kids can fly free with their parents.
Under this promotion that runs from November 21 to 27, when a family of 2 adults and 2 children travel together, one child gets 100 per cent discount while the second child gets 25 per cent discount on their tickets excluding taxes and surcharges.
This special offer is applicable for passengers travelling from Bahrain, Dammam, Riyadh and Jeddah on economy class to any destination on Gulf Air’s network across Middle East, Europe and India, said a statement from the carrier.
Tickets can be booked now for travel between January 15 to March 31, 2013. Tickets can be booked online at www.gulfair.com.

Therefore, we strive to offer a variety of innovative, value-for-money offers that give families not only an affordable flight but also a wholesome travel experience."
