Gulf Air’s acting chief executive officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi said: “Our operations to and from Saudi Arabia are always within our top commercial priority because of the importance of the Saudi market to Gulf Air. With the resumption of direct flights to Qassim, we will restore our entire Saudi network which consists of Riyadh, Jeddah, Medina, Dammam and Qassim. We take pride in celebrating Saudi Arabia’s national day by increasing number of weekly flights to 91, symbolising the 91st national day of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Our upgraded services will offer convenience and connectivity to our Saudi passengers to travel to Bahrain and connect to onward destinations within our extended global network.”
