We are delighted to partner with Bahrain Duty Free to deliver a wide range of superior duty free products to our passengers.”

“Gulf Air is continuously working to enhance its incredibly successful product and service offering, and that extends to onboard shopping opportunities. Bahrain Duty Free has worked hand-in-hand with the Gulf Air team to curate a collection of products that speak directly to passengers’ needs and desires allowing them the opportunity to now select their favourite fragrances and cosmetics from leading brands, unique pieces of jewellery, accessories, electronic gadgets and the latest travel essentials,” said Mr. Bassam Al Wardi, Bahrain Duty Free General Manager.
