Gulf Air increases flights for summer

As part of its new summer* schedule, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier Gulf Air will increase its flights to and from Amman, Beirut, and Bangkok among other cities during the upcoming peak summer travel period and until September 2015.

This follows the airline’s recent announcement of its enhanced Istanbul summer schedule, which now offers a choice of up to seven weekly flights during the summer period.

The frequency increase will provide greater choice of flights and enhanced connectivity for passengers travelling across the Gulf Air network with multiple daily flights to Amman, nine weekly flights to Beirut, and daily flights to Bangkok.

Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Commercial Officer, Ahmed Janahi said: "With the summer holidays upon us we are seeing an increase in travel demand to some of the airline’s most popular destinations. Our additional flights across the Gulf Air network are key to strengthening our strategic business and tourism links. These additional frequencies allow greater connectivity for passengers travelling across our extensive network including key destinations in Europe, the MENA region and Asia, via Bahrain International Airport while facilitating movement to and from the Kingdom of Bahrain.”
