Gulf Air to fly Hyderabad from July
Manama, April 22, 2008
Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, will launch its non-stop Hyderabad service in July as part of the airline’s growth strategy.
The daily service will commence on July 1 and operate from Bahrain to take advantage of two-way connectivity to many major markets within the region.
The route will be operated by using an Airbus A320-200, offering two-class service business and economy.
Hyderabad service will become the eight online destination for Gulf Air in India and will increase its total India frequencies to 68 weekly or 11,500 seats per week, said Gulf Air chief executive officer Bjorn Naf.
“India is one of the key countries that we are looking at to expand and grow as part of our strategy to be the airline of choice,” Naf noted.
In addition to the daily Hyderabad flights, Gulf Air operates to Mumbai, Delhi, Trivandrum, Madras, Bangalore, Cochin and Calcutta.
“Being the first regional carrier to operate flight to India, our infrastructure set up in the country is very well established and our preparations are well underway to commence Hyderabad operation,” he added.
Gulf Air’s vice president network Hashim Mahmood reiterated that the daily Bahrain-Hyderabad service along with the planned schedule to other Indian points will be the, “most adequate to fulfill our customer needs.”
“The two-way traffic between the region and India has grown tremendously and our revamped network offers better connection times, which will be an added advantage for Gulf Air customers.”
Gulf Air launched a new revamped network in July 2007, which offers more than 500 flights per week in the region.-TradeArabia News Service
