Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 10 July 2013

Bahrains Gulf Air has added seven extra flights weekly to and from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, increasing capacity on the route by over 30%.

The airline will now operate one extra frequency daily increasing its scheduled flights to three per day the key city in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Gulf Air increased its frequency from 14 to 21 flights per week between Bahrain and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on Tuesday. The extra flights offer more flexibility for business and leisure travelers, as well as offering more flights for pilgrims who now have more choices to visit the Holy City of Mecca via Jeddah.

The introduction of additional flights to Jeddah reinforces the importance of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a key longstanding market for Gulf Air and its destinations, said Gulf Air Acting Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Maher Salman AlMusallam. As part of Gulf Airs restructuring strategy the airline is committed to strengthening its core services specifically its regional network; Gulf Air operates one of the largest networks in the region. Gulf Air is proactively looking for opportunities to strengthen its network through increasing frequencies, enhancing existing codeshare relationships and developing others. We are in the final stages of negotiations to increase frequencies to a number of key destinations in order to offer more convenient travel options to our customers.
