Gulf Air to boost flights during peak summer travel period
aTP- Arab tourism portal- Bahrain national carrier Gulf Air has announced frequency increases to and from Queen Alia International Airport, Amman; Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport; and Istanbul Atatürk Airport in anticipation of the peak summer travel period.
From July until August end, the carrier’s double daily Amman service and daily Beirut service will increase to multiple daily with an increase of three weekly flights to each city while the airline’s five weekly Istanbul service will increase to daily.
Gulf Air’s acting chief commercial officer Ahmed Janahi said: "Boosting our network, Gulf Air’s planned frequency increases will provide greater choice of flights and enhanced connectivity for passengers travelling across the Gulf Air network. The summer period is typically associated with an increase in travel demand to some of our airline’s most popular destinations.
Our additional frequencies to the Jordanian and Lebanese capital cities and Turkey’s most populous city, are all key to strengthening our existing business and tourism links. These additional flights allow greater connectivity and more seamless travel for passengers travelling across our extensive network via Bahrain International Airport while facilitating movement to and from Bahrain."
