Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, today announced that it would be resuming its flights to the Greek capital, Athens, with 4 weekly flights to Athens International Airport starting on the 16th of June.
Gulf Air’s decision to resume flights to Athens reinforces the airline’s strategy of strengthening its network with key global destinations and providing strategic business and tourism links.
Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Maher Salman Al Musallam commented, “We are seeing unique business and tourism opportunities in Greece alongside positive signs of the country’s economic recovery. Accordingly, and on the back of Gulf Air’s recent network expansion to key destinations such as Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC) and Thiruvananthapuram in India, I am delighted to announce the return of our services to Athens.”
“Gulf Air’s service between Athens and Bahrain offers passengers more choice, nonstop convenience and onward connections via Bahrain across the GCC, MENA region and beyond, in-line with the airline’s strategy as one of Middle East’s largest network carriers. Flights to Athens will appeal to Bahrain and GCC residents as the Greek capital is popular with both business and leisure travellers. We expect Athens to be a successful addition to our network and look forward to a continuation of our strong ties with the Greek capital.”
