Gulf Air FFP

Gulf Air FFP is the loyalty program of the principal flag carrier of Bahrain. To avail of Gulf Air’s frequent flyer program, one just has to fill out the FFP online application form at the airline's official website. A member earns miles as well as loyalty points each time one flies with Gulf Air.

The FFP program has three levels. Blue membership is instantly awarded upon membership application approval and is valid for three years. At this level, a member can benefit from being able to reserve a preferred seat. The Silver level is achieved when a member earns 1,000 points within 12 months. To retain Silver status one just has to earn 700 points each year. Silver members get extra baggage allowance, 25% bonus miles on top of standard miles earned, and waitlist priority. They can also check in at the Falcon Gold counters even if flying coach. To qualify for Gold membership, one must earn 2,500 points within 12 months, and 1750 the next year to retain it. Those who earn points of at least 10,000 within five years get lifetime Gold membership. Awards that members get at this level include extra baggage allowance, 50% bonus miles on top of standard mileage earned, waitlist priority, use of Falcon Gold Lounge, and Gold Desk assistance.

The number of points earned depends on the route and flight class. Members can also earn miles from partner airlines, hotels and car rental companies.
