Gulf Air has announced its Ramadan schedule between Bahrain and Madinah, Saudi Arabia.
It was launched yesterday and means Muslim travellers can break their fast either after landing in Madinah or during the two-hour flight, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
"With our modified flight schedule we aim to respect the religious and cultural customs of our fasting travellers," said acting senior manager of Gulf Air GCC and Middle East sales Ahmed Al Matrook.
