Effective immediately, Gulf Air has boosted its Riyadh service with four additional afternoon flights a week, pushing the Bahraini carrier’s weekly flights between Bahrain International Airport and King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, the KSA, from 28 to 32.
The news complements the recent increase in the airline’s Jeddah service, to a total of four daily flights.
Acting chief commercial officer, Gulf Air, Ahmed Janahi enthused on the news: “Today, Gulf Air operates direct flights to five destinations within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: Dammam, Riyadh, Madina Al Munawarah, Jeddah and Gassim. The airline has had a presence in the Kingdom since 1950, when Gulf Air was first established.”
Gulf Air’s four additional afternoon flights between Bahrain and Riyadh will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Janahi continued: “The enhanced Gulf Air service gives travellers an additional afternoon flight, supplementing our existing, multiple daily schedule. This not only helps us further satisfy passenger need but also creates improved connections for those passengers connecting to and from Gulf Air’s network of onwards destinations across the globe.”
