Gulf Air has announced that it will be boosting the frequency of flights to and from Riyadh, the KSA from 32 to 35 weekly flights from October 30.
A result of high passenger demand, the five daily Riyadh flights will offer travellers greater choice and enhanced two-way connectivity across the Bahraini airline’s network.
Remarking on the development was CEO, Gulf Air, Maher Salman Al Musallam: “The Kingdoms of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia have historically held strong ties and this is supported by the longstanding service offered by Gulf Air – dating back to 1950. We are always looking to cater to and satisfy the high demand on our five destinations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in light of the strong relationship between the two Kingdoms and their people.
“The airline’s multiple daily flights to and from its Saudi destinations ensure that our passengers have a flexible, convenient and seamless travel offering, while our upcoming schedule increase on Gulf Air’s Riyadh service is in direct response to high passenger demand on this route. By enhancing the existing Gulf Air service to/from Riyadh we are offering a greater selection of flights and improved connections for those passengers travelling to and from Gulf Air’s network of onwards destinations across the globe, increasing passenger convenience – which is our ultimate goal,” Al Musallam added.
The airline currently offers direct flights to the cities of Riyadh, Jeddah, Madinah, Dammam and Gassim. Considered a key market for Bahrain’s national carrier, the Saudi market contributes two-way passenger movement between five Saudi airports and various Gulf Air destinations across the GCC, Middle East, Europe and Asia via Bahrain International Airport.
