Gulf Air Frequent Flyer Club
Gulf Air Frequent Flyer Club is a unique and generous frequent flyer
programme that is on par with any other frequent flyer programme in the
world. For example, unlike the majority of other programmes where miles
have a relatively short lifespan, Gulf Air Frequent flyer miles are
valid for a whole 10 years. Taking a qualifying flight in Business
Class earns twice the miles you would earn in Economy Class and three
times the standard mileage with First Class. There are 3 tiers of
membership, Blue, Silver and Gold. The club provides tier bonuses for
Silver members at 25% and 50% for Gold members. Upon reaching Silver or
Gold the number of loyalty points required is lowered each subsequent
years of membership, and if a Gold member earns 10,000 points in 5
years they are awarded lifetime Gold membership. Members can earn miles
each time they travel with Gulf Air, or its subsidiary Gulf Traveller
on eligible fares.
