On Wednesday (July 1, 2020), Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, announced the resumption of flights to/from Cairo and Athens from July 1st, 2020. Gulf Air has operated direct flights to Cairo since 1974 and started service to Athens in 1980. Both cities are key in the carrier’s network and are some of the most popular destinations in the North African and Mediterranean regions. Currently, Gulf Air offers return flights to London, Paris, Frankfurt, Manila and Pakistan.

Gulf Air has continued operations over the last three months and is working continuously with government authorities to resume operations as soon as airports reopen. The carrier has a flexible and agile network and can quickly adapt to government orders and civil aviation directives. Gulf Air is expanding their network tactically to strengthen their route map with feeder city destinations balanced from the east and west of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Earlier this year, the carrier announced that during the summer 2020 season, they will offer year-round service to Milan, Italy as well as seasonal service to Mykonos, Greece and Munich, Germany.
