Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, will resume its flights between Alexandria and the kingdom from June 9.
Gulf Air will operate four flights per week from Bahrain to Egypt’s most popular Mediterranean beach and cultural destination, Alexandria, to meet the summer season rush. The carrier's flights will be operated to and from Alexandria’s new Borg Al Arab Airport.
“Alexandria has always been a popular destination for our customers, and come summer, the demand will be even higher. This time we have introduced a split schedule with morning and evening flights so that our customers can choose a flight that suits their convenience,” stated Gulf Air area commercial manager Middle East Yaqoob Al Hajiri.
Gulf Air currently operates 14 weekly flights to and from Egypt, 10 flights from the capital Cairo, and 4 flights from Alexandria.
