Bahrain’s national carrier, Gulf Air, is to operate more repatriation flights between Saudi Arabia and India.
The airline is working with the Indian Embassy in Saudi Arabia to operate and plan for the upcoming charter flights.
Gulf Air will carry Indian nationals from Dammam International Airport to several cities in India including Chennai, Ahmedabad, Mangalore and Cochin.
The airline said it is working closely with authorities to operate the special non-scheduled flights to repatriate citizens and carry cargo.
Last month, Gulf Air carried a 50 tonnes of fresh meats and produce from Lahore to Riyadh on one flight on one of its Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
