Gulf Air, Saudi Air expand codeshare

Gulf Air and Saudi Arabian Airlines have strengthened and expanded their co-operation horizons. The two companies have added new services between Riyadh - Bangkok by two flights a week via Muscat Seeb International Airport.

“This will add more commercial and marketing choices for the two Arab carriers. It will also provide more travel solutions for our passengers. In addition, it will reduce costs,” says Saudi Arabian Airlines Vice President Marketing Planning Dr Omar Abdullah Jefri.

The two carriers are working closely together to extend the integration levels for their networks. They will also add more services through their code share agreement.

“We are proud of this co-operation and the strong ties that Gulf Air has with Saudi Arabian Airlines,” says Gulf Air Vice President Network Fareed Al Alawi.

“The co-ordination between us is exemplary on local and global levels. This is evident from our code-share flights which exceed 45 services a week.”


The newly added non-stop flights will complement the existing direct flights between Damman and Kathmandu, via Muscat and Bahrain/Al Medina Al Munawara, which are also expected to increase in the near future.
