Travel News Asia 6 July 2005

Gulf Air has added a new flight between Istanbul and Bahrain each Tuesday, bringing to four, the number of flights a week from Istanbul to Bahrain. This is coupled with a summer savings promotion between June 28 and September 30, 2005, which offers credit vouchers for 30% discount in first and business class as well as selected economy fares which can be used on a subsequent journey or for excess baggage on Gulf Air flights.

Gulf Air offers great timings, excellent connections and an exceptional service into the Gulf and on to the Indian Sub Continent, Far East and Australia, said Vice President Sales and Marketing Danny Barranger. 

Flights leave Istanbul on Monday, Tuesday and Saturday at 14.55 arriving 18.45 and on Friday it departs 16.10 arriving 20.15.

We are the regions largest operator of Airbus A320s and we have just completed an upgrading programme of these medium range aircraft to reflect the new and bolder Gulf Air brand image that was introduced in 2003 and to provide even greater levels of passenger comfort, said Barranger.

The A320s underwent a full refurbishment, which included exterior painting in the new livery and fully refitting of the interiors. The interior refurbishment includes new carpets, curtains, seat fabrics, pillows, bulkheads and seat belts, as well as facelifts to the lavatories and galleys.
