Middle Eastern carrier Gulf Air is providing direct flights from Dublin, Ireland to its hub in Bahrain from December three times a week. This is the first ever scheduled long haul route from Ireland to the Middle East.
Gulf Air will commence the service using a Airbus A330 on the 2nd December. All flights are timed to connect with the airline’s other new destination, Johannesburg.
Gulf Air President and Chief Executive James Hogan, says: “This first flight represents the start of a new relationship between Gulf Air and Ireland, as we connect this country with cities across the Middle East, Far East, Africa and Australia. We are delighted to be here, and even more excited about taking Ireland to the Middle East and beyond.”
Gulf Air becomes the only airline offering a First Class product in the Irish market. Passengers are able to experience state-of-the-art sky beds in first and business class, five-star chefs preparing and serving food in first class, and Norland-trained Sky Nannies looking after young travelers in all classes.
