Special fares for disabled
Manama, June 18, 2007
Gulf Air has launched special fares for physically-challenged people to travel in economy class.
The move comes as a demonstration of the national carrier's social commitment to the people of Bahrain, the airline said in a statement.
'Physically-challenged people cannot be left alone to fight the adversities of life,' said Gulf Air executive vice president of marketing and sales Lee Shave.
'This gesture reiterates the corporate responsibility of Gulf Air to support the Bahraini society, where it has been operating for over five and a half decades now.'
Physically-challenged people can avail Gulf Air special offer by producing a letter from the Social Development Ministry as a proof, said Gulf Air general manager Bahrain Abdulmalik Al Saei.
Tickets can be bought from any of the airline's ticketing offices in Bahrain.
'It is but natural for the national carrier to support the Bahraini society in every possible way it could,' said Al Saei.
'These special fares for the physically-challenged are a reflection of this commitment.' TradeArabia News Service
