Both seasonal destinations will be served by the airline’s new Airbus A321neoLR with two weekly flights running from June 30 until September 25.
The seasonal summer routes to Egypt will boost the airline’s network with popular seaside destinations that are favourite to many tourists and families in the Kingdom of Bahrain and the region, especially, as demand for travel gradually grows towards the summer holidays with travel restrictions easing off.
Waleed Abdulhameed AlAlawi, acting CEO, Gulf Air said, “We are proudly watching our network grow further with the addition of new destinations and welcoming back routes to cater to the summer traffic. Our passengers have been through this journey with us as we navigated 2020 as one of the few airlines flying at the peak of the pandemic. Today, we are one of the first airlines in the world to have announced that 100 percent of our crew are vaccinated, provided all our passengers complimentary COVID-19 insurance as well as to have initiated the IATA Travel Pass which we launched on our flights to London, Athens, and Singapore.”
