Bahrain’s national carrier, Gulf Air, will resume direct passenger services to and from Kuwait with scheduled operations starting from 1 August.
Kuwait is the latest point in Gulf Air’s post-lockdown network, which now include London, Paris, Frankfurt, Manila, Athens, Cairo, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and several destinations in Pakistan.
Gulf Air has been operating direct flights between Bahrain and the Kuwait since 1959.
Gulf Air said it is continuously working with governments authorities throughout the destinations on its network to resume operations as soon as airports open.
Gulf Air said it has a flexible and agile network by immediately adapting to government orders and civil aviation directives around its network.
Meanwhile, Kuwait’s own carrier, Jazeera Airways, announced that it is operating a new service to the touristic destination of Trabzon in Turkey starting from 3 August, with two return flights per week every Monday and Friday.
With the new service, Jazeera Airways will now be operating 11 flights per week to four airports in Turkey, namely Istanbul International Airport, Sabiha Gokcen International Airport, Milas-Bodrum Airport and Trabzon Airport.
Jazeera Airways’ CEO, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “Turkey has always been a great destination with high demand for tourism, so it was only natural to introduce a new getaway in the country for our passengers to explore the historical landmarks, attractions and rich culture that lies on the Black Sea coast.”
