The partnership will see Middle East Airlines place its ‘ME’ code on Gulf Air flights on the Beirut-Bahrain-Beirut route.

We are pleased with this partnership with Gulf Air that will enable us to offer to our loyal passengers a new destination Bahrain and many other destinations in Asia via the Gulf Air network.”
