Bahrain’s national carrier Gulf Air has boosted frequencies to popular destinations in line with the increasing demand and the relaxed travel restrictions in many countries around the globe.

Gulf Air destinations have seen an increase in frequency with the growth of passenger number in the current quarter ahead of the holiday season.

The airline has increased frequencies to Amman (double daily), Frankfurt (daily), Paris (daily), Casablanca (3 weekly), Singapore (3 weekly), Bangkok (5 weekly), Istanbul (10 weekly), Dubai (49 weekly), Pakistan (35 weekly), and Manila (9 weekly).

“We’re getting closer to full restoration of our network,” Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Executive Officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi said.

“Although frequencies are lower than pre-pandemic levels, it is important for us to bring back our network and offer our passengers more choices of more destinations. Frequencies are regularly reviewed and increased based on network optimization, forecast, demand and entry restrictions.”

The airline is also participating in the Dubai Airshow 2021 on November 14 - 18 November and will be showcasing its flagship aircraft the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in its iconic 70th-anniversary livery.

The only live and in-person aerospace event taking place in 2021, the Dubai Airshow 2021 will feature more than 1,200 exhibitors, representatives from 148 countries, more than 80 start-ups, decision-makers in attendance and over 20 countries pavilions.

Including Gulf Air’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, over 160 aircraft will be on display from top international aerospace leaders.

“Gulf Air’s participation at the Dubai Airshow 2021 is important to showcase the Kingdom of Bahrain and its national carrier including our new fleet and our boutique products and services in a leading and international aerospace event,” AlAlawi said.

“Gulf Air will benefit from this platform to network with key industry players with the ultimate goal to elevate its role in the aviation industry regionally and globally.”
