Gulf Air is gearing up for the launch of a direct summer service to Costa del Sol in Malaga, Spain.
Marking the airline’s first new destination in 2019, flights to Costa del Sol will commence on June 14 until September 15, operating during the summer season.
“In line with our five-year strategy to become the airline of choice, and in light of the recent adaptation of the new boutique business model, we are adding a seasonal destination to cater to summer’s peak travel demand,” declared CEO, Gulf Air, Krešimir Kučko. “Malaga is known for its summer appeal as a holiday destination and is very popular to our customers in the region. Gulf Air is flying to a direct point in Spain for the first time and we are excited to offer this opportunity to everyone this summer.”
Earlier in 2019, Gulf Air announced its new boutique business model concept which will reinforce its focus on product and customer experience. As already done in the hospitality industry, Gulf Air will differentiate itself as a boutique airline that is unique in the way it operates, compared to airlines that are more volume driven. This approach will give the airline a competitive advantage that will translate in its new fleet, new Falcon Gold class offering, new exclusive products, new destinations for 2019 and its presence in the new terminal at Bahrain International Airport , which is due to open towards the end of the year.
