The frequency and capacity increases that Gulf Air will implement in the coming months are in response to the demand on these key routes. Gulf Air’s summer schedule provides greater choice of flights and greater capacity to carry more passengers during the busy summer holiday period. This will also serve to strengthen the Kingdom of Bahrain’s strategic business and tourism links and facilitate enhanced connectivity for passengers travelling across the Gulf Air network, to and from Bahrain.”
