Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of
Bahrain, and Aegean Airlines, Greece's largest carrier, have
entered into a codeshare partnership.
The airlines will codeshare on
flights from Bahrain, via Athens, to and from the European cities
of Brussels and Rome while travellers from Geneva, Milan and
Vienna can now make use of the codeshare on flights, via Athens, to the Kingdom of
Bahrain with Gulf Air.
Raftopoulos, Network Planning and Alliances Director of Aegean
Airlines, said, “We welcome this new codeshare with Gulf Air and
we strongly believe that the combined networks of our two carriers
will offer our guests new travel opportunities not only between
Greece and Bahrain, but also beyond.”
Gulf Air operates four direct flights per week
between Bahrain and the Greek capital in addition to operating
double daily flights, or more, to ten regional cities across the
GCC and MENA region.
Mr. Ahmed Janahi, Gulf Air Chief Commercial
Officer, said, “Our commitment to strengthening Gulf Air’s network
is reinforced with this codeshare agreement – allowing us to
connect our passengers to popular destinations across Europe that
extend beyond our network, while giving passengers from more
cities in Europe the distinctive opportunity to visit the Kingdom
of Bahrain while experiencing our unique product and service
