Gulf Air goes to Istanbul daily
Gulf Air, the Kingdom of Bahrain's national carrier, will introduce a permanent increase to its Istanbul service with daily flights on the route effective early November 2017, says a press release.
The increase is in direct response to passenger demand, increasing the number of convenient flight options offered by the airline and giving passengers greater flexibility and choice when travelling to and from Istanbul.
Last year Gulf Air celebrated the 30th anniversary of its direct, nonstop service to and from the city of Istanbul in the Republic of Turkey. Launched in 1986, Istanbul is one of the airline's main tourist destinations with growing numbers of passengers from Bahrain and the GCC throughout the year. Gulf Air's Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Captain Waleed Abdul Hameed Al Alawi, commented on this growth saying: "Gulf Air's Istanbul route performance to date has been promising with consistently strong passenger demand throughout the year.
