Gulf Air hosts Greek travel agents
Manama, May 25, 2014
Gulf Air, Bahrain's national carrier, recently hosted a networking event for Greece-based travel agents to promote tourism between Bahrain, the GCC region and Greece, and to share information about Gulf Air products and services.
Gulf Air will resume flights to Athens starting on June 16 with four weekly flights.
The Ambassador of Greece to Kuwait and Bahrain, Dr Theodoros Theodorou, and members of Gulf Air’s executive management team also attended the event alongside travel agents from Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
Gulf Air acting chief executive officer Maher Salman AlMusallam said: "As the Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier we play a key role in supporting our kingdom’s on-going economic growth and strengthening strategic ties with key global destinations. As such, events such as these are important in enabling greater tourism and business movement between Greece and, not only Bahrain, but the greater Middle East region.”
On the back of Gulf Air’s recent network expansion to key destinations such as Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC) and Thiruvananthapuram in India, the airline is seeing unique business and tourism opportunities in Greece alongside positive signs of the country’s economic recovery, a statement said. - TradeArabia News Service
