Bahrain flag carrier Gulf Air is onboard once again, supporting Shop Bahrain for the fourth consecutive year as official airline of the nationwide shopping festival.

As a strategic partner of “Shop Bahrain,” Gulf Air is providing more than 6,000 airline tickets at discounted prices as raffle prizes. In addition, Gulf Air customers will receive 4 points for every BD1 ($2.6) spent when purchasing flights throughout the festival period which runs until February 10.

Gulf Air deputy CEO, Captain Waleed Abdulhameed Al Alawi, said: “We are delighted to partner with Shop Bahrain once again. This strategic partnership is in line with Gulf Air’s ongoing commitment to support initiatives that help drive the growth of the tourism, retail and hospitality sectors in Bahrain. It is fitting that we collaborate in this regard, further strengthening the kingdom's positioning as an attractive destination regionally, while helping to showcase Bahrain’s tourist attractions and encourage visitors to experience the trademark Arabian hospitality for which our kingdom and its national carrier are renowned.”

Commenting on the partnership, Shop Bahrain director, Yousef Al Khan, stated: “We are honoured to have Gulf Air’s support for the fourth consecutive year. In their capacity as the kingdom’s national carrier, they have contributed to the continued success of the festival and played an integral role in reinforcing Bahrain’s position as a tourist destination on a regional level.”

“This year, we have been coordinating with Gulf Air and various hotels in the kingdom to develop attractive tourist packages. We aim to offer visitors an unforgettable shopping experience packed with fun-filled events and promotions, alongside the opportunity to participate in the festival’s exciting raffle draws and win valuable prizes,” he concluded.

Today, Gulf Air serves 42 cities in 25 countries across the globe and operates double daily flights or more to select destinations across the GCC, Mena region, Indian Subcontinent and Europe. The airline provides seamless connectivity for passengers travelling across its network via its efficient Bahrain International Airport hub. Gulf Air is gearing up to start welcoming its incoming fleet of new Boeing and Airbus aircraft in 2018 and, with this development, passengers can soon not only enjoy the airline’s trademark Arabian hospitality, but also remarkable product and service enhancements alongside network expansion. - TradeArabia News Service
