Gulf Air Launches Dubai London Daily

22nd Jun 2004

Today Gulf Air, the national airline of the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Sultanate of Oman and Emirate of Abu Dhabi, launched its daily service from Dubai to London Heathrow.  “Due to the increasing demand for flights from Dubai, Gulf Air is expanding its network to meet customer needs,” said James Hogan, President and Chief Executive at Gulf Air. “The addition of the daily, flight from Dubai means that travellers between the UAE and UK now have even more choices with Gulf Air - making us the carrier with the greatest frequency of flights to the region out of Heathrow.”

The daily Dubai flights are in addition to the twice-daily flights from Abu Dhabi To London Heathrow.

Flights will depart Dubai International Airport at 11:30 arriving at London Heathrow at 17:55 after a 30-minute layover in Bahrain. For the return leg, the flight leaves London at 20:00 and arrives in Dubai at 9:40 the next morning. 

Customers from Dubai will travel to London in the comfort of one of Gulf Air’s luxurious ultra-long haul Airbus A340 aircraft. Onboard services include the airline’s five star in-flight chef service in the First Class cabin, the equivalent of a first class menu for Business Class passengers, and the Sky Nanny in all cabins.

“London is one of Europe’s most popular destinations and this new service at Dubai International Airport is just in time for the peak summer period,” added Mr. Hogan. “This is another example of how Gulf Air is better serving its customers by getting them where they want to go, when they want to go.”
