Gulf Air resumes double daily service to London

Flag carrier Gulf Air is going double daily to London.

It restored its double daily direct passenger flights to London Heathrow following the latest decision to add Bahrain to the UK's amber list.

Gulf Air's Acting Chief Executive Officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi said: "London is one of our main destinations in Western Europe and we've been connecting both Kingdoms since 1970. It has also been a destination that we maintained scheduled operations to throughout 2020".

Gulf Air began the summer season with flights to 80% of its pre-pandemic network and has continued to resume operations.

The airline has also announced that it has successfully launched all of its seasonal destinations for the summer of 2021 with direct flights to Mykonos and Santorini in Greece, Malaga in Spain and Alexandria and Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt as well as recently resuming Tbilisi in Georgia.

The airline currently flies to cities including Cairo, Paris, Frankfurt, Athens, Istanbul, Bangkok, Manila, Singapore, the Maldives and several destinations in India and Pakistan.

In May, the airline announced that all its flights would be operated by 100% vaccinated crew including pilots and flight attendants.

The airline started its internal vaccination campaign for its operating crew and front line staff in December 2020.
