Gulf Air will resume flights to the Greek Capital this summer, with four weekly services to Athens International Airport.
The Bahrain national carrier will begin fights on 16 June, in line with the airline’s strategy of strengthening its network with key global destinations and providing strategic business and tourism links.
The flights will be operated by an Airbus A320-ER aircraft in a two-class configuration, featuring 14 Falcon Gold Class seats and 96 Economy Class seats.
“Gulf Air ‘s service between Athens and Bahrain offers passengers more choice, non-stop convenience and onward connections via Bahrain across the GCC, MENA region and beyond…” said acting chief executive officer, Mr. Maher Salman Al Musallam.
“Flights to Athens will appeal to Bahrain and GCC residents as the Greek capital is popular with both business and leisure travellers.”
The announcement comes off the back of Gulf Air ‘s recent network expansion to key destinations such as Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC) and Thiruvananthapuram in India.
