Gulf Air lending support to national team

Posted 31 December 2017 · Add Comment

As excitement mounts for the final stages of football’s Gulf Cup, Bahrain’s Gulf Air is getting behind its national team ahead of Tuesday’s semi-final against Oman which is being played in Kuwait.


The Bahraini carrier has allocated an aircraft to transport spectators free of charge from Bahrain to Kuwait to show their support to the team.
The airline’s support comes in line with a series of initiatives to support the sport scene in the Kingdom and as part of Gulf Air’s corporate social responsibility program as the national carrier helping the national team in its overseas participations.
The airline earlier took the team to Kuwait where they held favourites Iraq to a draw, drew with Qatar and beat Yemen on their way to the semi-final stage.

Gulf Air CEO, Mr. Krešimir Kučko and Gulf Air Deputy CEO Captain Waleed Abdulhameed Al Alawi are seen with the Bahrain National Football Team before its departure to Kuwait for Arabian Gulf Cup.
