Gulf Air resumes flights to Qassim, boosts Saudi frequency

MANAMA, September 23, 2021

Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, has announced the resumption of direct flights to Qassim’s Prince Naif Bin Abdulaziz Airport in Saudi Arabia with four weekly flights starting from October 3. 
The airline said in a statement that it will also upgrade its frequency to and from Saudi Arabia to 91 weekly flights, coinciding with the Kingdom’s 91st National Day.
Gulf Air’s Acting CEO Captain Waleed AlAlawi said: “With the resumption of direct flights to Qassim, we will restore our entire Saudi network which consists of Riyadh, Jeddah, Medina, Dammam and Qassim. We take pride in celebrating Saudi Arabia’s national day by increasing number of weekly flights to 91, symbolising their 91st National Day. 
"Our upgraded services will offer convenience and connectivity to our Saudi passengers to travel to Bahrain and connect to onward destinations within our extended global network.”
Gulf Air has been operating direct flights between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia in the last decades and the airline’s network in Saudi Arabia feeds into the airline’s global network.
Being one of the few airlines that never stopped flying in 2020, Gulf Air continuously works closely with the government authorities across its network to resume operations as demand for travel grows.-TradeArabia News Service
