Manama, July 15, 2010
Flights by Gulf Air to Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), India, will be suspended from its route network starting next month, it has been announced.
A spokeswoman said the difficult decision was taken after a thorough review and the airline was working towards becoming a sustainable business.
It plans to expand its operations to new destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe and suspend routes that are not commercially viable, she said.
'Gulf Air apologises to passengers affected by these cancellations and will be contacting those booked and ticketed on these services to provide them with a full refund or offer alternative travel arrangements.'
The last service from Bahrain will operate on July 31 with the last inbound service to Bahrain on August 1.-TradeArabia News Service
