This July, Gulf Air will be enhancing its destination portfolio with two times weekly flights to Nice, France, operated by an Airbus 321neo aircraft.
The announcement was made during the recent Kuwait Aviation Show 2020, in which Gulf Air participated.
Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, and chairman of Gulf Air’s Board of Directors, HE Zayed R. Alzayani, enthused on the news: “It is very exciting for the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain to reach further places and connect multiple cities in the East and the West to its hub, Bahrain.
“On the western side of our network map, and coinciding with our expansion in Europe in summer 2020, we will launch flights to Nice on the Cote d’Azur as a boutique destination catering to our premium leisure travellers. As we welcome our new Airbus 321neo next year, we will serve our European routes with a brand-new aircraft featuring flat-beds and superior in-flight entertainment system for more enjoyable journeys with Gulf Air,” Alzayani added.
Dedicated to enhancing its portfolio of destinations, Gulf Air also recently shed light on plans to operate flights to Milan this year as a year-round destination, as well as Mykonos and Munich as seasonal destinations.
