Firm in Bahrain Air holiday package deal
Manama, December 12, 2011
Bahrain Air, the second flag carrier of the Kingdom, has signed up Marvida Travel and Tours, a locally renowned holiday wholesaler, for marketing the holiday packages to destinations on its route network.
As per the agreement, Marvida will be responsible for all the Bahrain Air customers' needs in providing travel-related services, including hotel accommodation, package tours, Umrah packages, car rentals and travel insurance.
As a first step, it will operate a dedicated holiday package office in Gudaibiya, adding a new flavour for passengers travelling with Bahrain Air to all its destinations, said a senior company official.
Group inclusive tours will benefit residents in the GCC to visit Bahrain Air destinations at very low rates during the off peak seasons and vice versa from the Indian subcontinent to the GCC, remarked Marvida Travel general manager Cecil Ratnayake.
The travel agency's main focus will be to explore new revenue streams in using Bahrain Air as a MICE (meetings, incentives, conference and exhibition) carrier, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
