The event was attended by Gulf Air’s chief executive Samer Majali, senior management members and various airport staff.
Speaking on the sidelines of the event, the Syrian Ambassador to the Kingdom of Bahrain, Suleiman Sarra said, “We wholeheartedly welcome Gulf Air expanding its network into the Syrian Arab Republic.
