On Tuesday (June 22, 2021), Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, announced an expansion of services beyond their hub at Bahrain International Airport. The carrier has launched new point to point flights between Athens and Larnaca in the Mediterranean, as well as between the Far eastern capitals of Bangkok and Singapore. Tickets are now available for booking on the Gulf Air website and through travel agents in the previously mentioned cities.

In Tuesday’s announcement, Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, Captain Waleed AlAlawi, said,

“This is an exciting development for the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Now, not only do we operate from and to our hub, but we also operate from and to foreign points and give the opportunity for more passengers to experience the Arabian hospitality at a local level in their own markets. We studied the demand between Athens and Larnaca as well as between Bangkok and Singapore to carry passengers between each city pair. This is the beginning of a wider plan to expand globally and be available and more visible to the local markets in the countries that we fly to.”

Founded in 1950, Gulf Air is the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain and normally serves 49 cities in 27 countries. From its hub at Bahrain International Airport, the airline offers twice daily service to 10 or more regional cities as well as international flights to the Indian subcontinent and Europe. Gulf Air currently operates a modern fleet of 33 narrow and widebody aircraft and by 2023 their fleet will consist of 10 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, 12 Airbus A320neos and 17 Airbus A321neos. The airline is known for its traditional Arabian hospitality, and Gulf Air is committed to becoming an industry leader by developing products and services that reflect the evolving needs and aspirations of their guests.
