HISTORY: GULF AIR is the principal flag carrier of Bahrain. Headquartered in Muharraq, adjacent to Bahrain International Airport. On 24 March 1950 Gulf Air registered as Gulf Aviation Company Limited a private shareholding company. In 1973 the governments of the Emirate (now Kingdom) of Bahrain, the State of Qatar, the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the Sultanate of Oman agreed to purchase the BOAC Associated Companies holding in Gulf Aviation. The Foundation Treaty was signed on 1 January 1974 and gave each government a 25% shareholding in Gulf Aviation, which became a holding company. The operating company was now branded as Gulf Air and became the flag carrier for the four states.
