Gulf Air Cancellation Policy

Moreover, if Gulf Air cancels the flight, the airline will provide essential services to the passengers—for instance, meals, accommodation, ground transport, etc. However, the airline will try to get passengers to their destination immediately. If the options are unacceptable to the passengers, they can apply for a refund.
