“We’ve been consistently impressed by how easy it is to run exactly what we want on Azure – a powerful enterprise cloud OS.” -Dr. Jassim Haji, Director of Information Technology, Gulf Air

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, started operations in 1950 and was one of the first commercial airlines established in the Middle East. Renowned for its peerless customer service, Gulf Air is committed to being an industry leader and developing products and services that reflect the evolving needs and aspirations of its passengers. Gulf Air set out to establish a new modern online presence that reflected passengers’ changing habits, including higher demand for web-based access and the ability to book tickets and choose preferences from a range of devices.

At the heart of their new system is the popular content management system Drupal, a move that’s making editing and content management of the new site much faster, as well as Gulf Air used a number of best-of-breed open source apps beyond Drupal. The great support for open source on Azure, made it easy to integrate the range of open source technologies exactly how they envisioned.
