Gulf Air operates double daily flights to London

Posted 9 August 2021 · Add Comment

Gulf Air has restored its flagship double daily direct passenger flights to London Heathrow in line with the latest decision by the British authorities to add the Kingdom of Bahrain to their Amber List as of August 8.

 

Being on the amber list will mean that citizens and residents of Bahrain will be able to quarantine at their choice of residence for 10 days as opposed to institutional quarantine for arrivals from red list countries.

 

Chief executive officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi said: “London is one of our main destinations in Western Europe and we’ve been connecting both Kingdoms since 1970. It has also been a destination that we maintained scheduled operations to throughout 2020. Thanks to the great efforts by The National Taskforce for Combating the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Kingdom of Bahrain is now moved from the red list to the amber list in the UK colour coding entry system.” He added: “Gulf Air is known for its morning and night flights to and from London and we’re happy to bring these back to offer more flexibility and convenience to our passengers.”
