Gulf Air's unique aid for that perfect journey.
To help families travelling with children - and those passengers who aren't - Gulf Air offers a free service dedicated to young travellers, the Sky Nanny.
The dedicated childcare service for children has been extended to the Bahrain lounge, and the Sky Nanny is available from 0800 to 1400 each day to provide a wide range of on-the-ground services to complement the much heralded on board service.
Working on board all wide-bodied aircraft flying long haul routes, Sky Nannies offer help with boarding and disembarkation, give parents that much needed break during a long flight and generally provide a watchful eye on the little ones.
Every Gulf Air Sky Nanny is specially trained for inflight childcare services so parents can be assured that children will receive the best care and attention every step of the way.
Help from the moment you board your flight.
The job of a Sky Nanny isn't confined to just helping onboard. From the moment you arrive at the departure gate, a Sky Nanny will be on hand to escort you to your seat.
Onboard, she will then outline her role to you, suggest appropriate dining times for children and check any special dietary requirements you may have arranged beforehand. (These need to be notified at least 24 hours prior to departure.)
Making travel a pleasure
It is after take-off where the Sky Nanny really comes into her own, as your children are the centre of her attention. Arranging convenient dining times for the children to leave you free to enjoy your own meals or setting up the bassinet if you're travelling with a baby. Passengers travelling with infants up to the age of 7 months and weighing less than 10 kilos may use the baby bassinet facility onboard.
Sky Nannies can organise drinks for children and do their meal service during the main bar service so you're free to assist your children if necessary - without interrupting your own meal. They'll also find lots of things to keep your children occupied throughout the journey
And of course it's very reassuring to know a Sky Nanny will be keeping a watchful eye on your child should you doze off or just want to get engrossed in a book or a movie.
Special entertainment for little ones
With Sky Nannies on board, every child will enjoy that special bit of attention - whether it's a snack during the movie or help with a tricky bit of colouring. And, there is plenty to keep them amused on the inflight entertainment system, including Disney specials and kid's movies (only on A330 & A340).
