Ansett Australia supplied the crew to fly from the hub of the airline's operations in the sultanate. The government increased its stake in the airline to 80% after it failed as a regional carrier. The sultan split from Gulf Air and launched his own service to Europe and Southeast Asia. Over the next three years, the government increased its stake in the airline.
Outside of the Middle East, there are destinations in Europe, India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh as well as flights to Northern Africa.
The airline had a plan to add 70 destinations and 70 aircraft. It plans to grow from 34 to 44 destinations.
Alcohol is served on flights beyond the Mideast despite the fact that alcohol is not allowed in countries where it is forbidden during the holy month of Islam.
Boeing 787-9 and 787-9 are two of the long haul aircraft that the carrier has.
They have a first class cabin on both the Boeing 787-9 and the A330-300.
