Lufthansa is extending its route network to the Gulf region: as of 2nd May, 2006 it will be offering three weekly direct flights from Frankfurt to Bahrain, continuing to Abu Dhabi. The flights operated by three-class A330-300 will leave each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 13.10 hrs local time from Frankfurt, and arrive in Bahrain at 20.00 hrs local time.
On the same day, the flight will leave Bahrain at 20.50 hrs local time and arrive in Abu Dhabi at 22.50 hrs local time.
The return flights will leave Abu Dhabi every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 00.15 local time and arrive in Bahrain at 00.20 local time. The flight follows on from Bahrain at 01.20 local time to Frankfurt at 06.20 local time.
These timings enable travellers to make optimal connections with flights to popular destinations in Europe and the GCC region.
Uwe Wriedt, General Manager U.A.E, and Director for the Gulf and Pakistan said,
“We are very glad to have our flight into a fruitful and promising market such as Bahrain. With the inclusion of the flights to Bahrain, this opens up a new dimension for us into the Bahrain market and our new and existing customers. Also it’s important to note that the Bahrain flights fly on different days than Dammam therefore ideally complementing the Dammam flight which for Dammam/Bahrain gives a total of six flights for the Eastern Province / Bahrain. Lufthansa is consistently continuing its strategy of flights to the world’s oil markets and growing industries. The German carrier is proud to say it now serves all destinations in the GCC region. In addition to Bahrain, the airline serves important markets like Doha, Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Muscat in the GCC region.”
Bahrain is an archipelago of 33 islands and is situated in the Arabian Gulf, off the east coast of Saudi Arabia, with a total land area in excess of 700sq.kms.
Bahrain is believed to be responsible for the unusual luster of natural pearls, the country’s major economy before the advent of oil. In addition, the land was once blessed with a remarkable number of natural springs, which irrigated the fertile north and western belts for centuries
The highest point of Bahrain is the Jabel Dukhan, 134 meters above the sea level.
The majority of Bahrain’s oil wells are in this area. The country offers a fascinating blend of eastern and western cultures as high rise buildings vie for space with more traditional dwellings and ancient traditions and historical sites mix with modern developments and cosmopolitan living.
Bahrain’s population of around 700,000 consists of a significant percentage of expatriates from all over the world.
