“It is very exciting for our national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain to reach further places and connect multiple cities in the east and the west to its hub, Bahrain. On the western side of our network map and coinciding with our expansion in Europe in summer 2020, we will launch flights to Nice on the Cote d’Azur as a boutique destination catering to our premium leisure travelers.
