Etihad Airways celebrates 15th anniversary to Bahrain

Posted 22 August 2019 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its operations between the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi, and Manama, capital of Bahrain.

 

Since launching services to Bahrain on 22 August 2004, Etihad has carried more than 2.5 million guests between the two capitals. Today, the airline operates 28 flights per week and carries 200,000 guests annually to and from Bahrain, using Airbus A320 aircraft.

Earlier this year, Etihad Airways and Gulf Air signed a codeshare agreement in which each placed their flight codes on services operated by the other between and beyond Abu Dhabi and Manama, strengthening the offering of both airlines.

Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “We are delighted to celebrate the 15th anniversary of our flights to Bahrain, which was one of the first routes we served after Etihad was established in November 2003.

“Bahrain has evolved as a significant market for Etihad, notably because of its strong relationships, long history and shared culture with the UAE, and we will continue to build upon these foundations.”

“We thank our guests and partners for supporting Etihad’s operations during this period, and look forward to progressing together, within and beyond our home bases in the GCC region.”
