Gulf Air Says Shukran!

Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, UAE, Oman and Qatar, introduces å‘Shukranå’, a Travel Co-ordinatorå‘s Scheme, which recognises and rewards the work of secretaries or personal assistants of Gold and Silver level members of its FALCON Frequent Flyer Programme. å‘Shukranå’ is the Arabic word for å‘Thank Youå’ and the new scheme introduced by Gulf Air does just that å- with a gift of bonus Miles.

“As a demonstration of our commitment to going the extra mile for our FALCON Members, we are introducing ‘Shukran’ as an exclusive benefit for Gold and Silver level members. In addition to being able to nominate their family members in the FALCON Frequent Flyer Programme, Gold and Silver level Members can now nominate their secretaries or personal assistants who will be awarded free FALCON Miles every time the Member travels on qualifying flights with Gulf Air and Oman Air,” said John Butler, Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Gulf Air.

“This new addition to the benefits currently offered by the FALCON Loyalty Programme allows our top tier FALCON Members to say a ‘Thank You’ to the all important person who takes care of all his or her travel arrangements. The Travel Co-ordinators will be automatically enrolled in the FALCON Programme and will begin to enjoy all the benefits that this membership brings, in addition to earning generous ‘Shukran’ bonus miles,” added Meher Parakh, Manager, Loyalty Programmes, Gulf Air.

The FALCON Programme constantly works towards enhancing the benefits offered to its FALCON Members. Visit Gulf Air’s website at for more details on special offers and benefits of the FALCON Frequent Flyer Programme, or call its service center on +973 338963.
