Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, will resume direct flights to and from India staring with Thiruvananthapuram on 14 September.
Cochin and Calicut will also be added to Gulf Air’s network this week with plans to announce a further expansion to more destinations in India soon.
The flights are operating based on a special agreement between the governments of Bahrain and India.
India is a key part of Gulf Air’s network and will be a welcome addition to London, Paris, Frankfurt, Manila, Athens, Cairo, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait, Peshawar, Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi, where the airline already flies.
Gulf Air said its “flexible and agile network” has allowed it to adapt quickly to government orders and civil aviation directives.
