Gulf Air has officially launched its much-awaited new routes which will offer passengers greater access to a range of European destinations.

The Kingdom’s national carrier has expanded its network with flights to Manchester in the UK, Rome and Milan in Italy, and Nice in France. The new routes will be a great boost as the holiday season gets underway.

There was a celebration of the occasion at Bahrain International Airport, which was attended by government officials, ambassadors and diplomats, members of Gulf Air’s executive management, guests from the airline’s stakeholders and airport officials.

Gulf Air Acting Chief Executive Officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi welcomed guests of the national carrier and expressed his appreciation for their attendance to celebrate the opening of the airline’s latest destinations; stressing that these destinations represent a qualitative addition to tourism, business and trade exchange between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the European countries to which Gulf Air will soon start operating flights.

As well as taking souvenir photos, Gulf Air guests also enjoyed lunch in the airline’s Falcon Gold Lounge at Bahrain International Airport, with menus containing well-known dishes from the new destinations.

Earlier this year, Gulf Air announced the launch of the aforementioned new destinations, in addition to resuming its operations to some of the preferred seasonal spots, including Mykonos and Santorini in Greece, Malaga in Spain, Sharm ElSheikh and Alexandria in Egypt, and Salalah in Oman.

In 2019 and in line with its strategy to become the customer’s airline of choice, Gulf Air announced its boutique business model concept, which would reinforce its focus on product and customer experience, and continues to showcase the implementation of its strategy successfully. Gulf Air differentiates itself as a boutique airline with its fleet modernisation strategy, new Falcon Gold class offering, upgraded economy class experience, new destinations and its presence in the new terminal at Bahrain International Airport. ✤
