Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, invited over 100 travel agent representatives to an official awards ceremony and dinner at the Sheraton Hotel, Amman this week, honoring the airline’s top travel agents in Jordan.
The event was aimed at recognizing and thanking trade partners for their loyalty and continued support to Gulf Air while giving them an opportunity to spend an evening in a relaxing environment with other members of the travel trade.
Gulf Air Country Manager, Jordan Mr. Ghanim Monzer Alsukhon thanked the travel agents for their continuous support to Gulf Air business, welcoming them to the event and providing them with an overview of the airline’s latest products, services and various commercial initiatives to support their business. “Travel agents are integral to the growth of our airline, and we are taking this opportunity to thank these key agencies in Amman for making the Gulf Air experience a positive one for our passengers from the very first moment of booking.”
