Gulf Air Increases Frequencies to Jeddah from Double to Triple Daily

Gulf Air, Bahrain’s national carrier has added seven extra flights weekly to and from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, increasing capacity on the route by over 30% to meet a growing market demand. The airline will now operate one extra frequency daily increasing its scheduled flights to three per day the key city in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

 

Starting from 9 July 2013, Gulf Air will increase its frequency from 14 to 21 flights per week each direction. The extra flights offer more flexibility for Bahrain and Saudi-based business and leisure travelers and more flights for pilgrims who now have more choices to visit the holy city of Mecca via Jeddah.

 

Gulf Air Acting Chief Executive Officer Mr. Maher Salman AlMusallam said, “I would like to thank Saudi Arabia’s General Authority specifically its President Prince Fahd bin Abdullah Al Saud, and its  Vice President, Dr. Faisal Al-Sugair and his colleagues for their cooperation in approving the additional frequencies. The introduction of additional flights between Jeddah and Bahrain reinforces the importance of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a key longstanding market for Gulf Air and is aligned to the airline’s business strategy to concentrate on high-demand routes to ensure its primary customer base is served effectively and efficiently.”

 

He continued, “As part of Gulf Air’s restructuring strategy the airline is committed to strengthening its core services specifically its regional network; Gulf Air operates one of the largest networks in the region. Gulf Air is proactively looking for opportunities to strengthen its network through increasing frequencies, enhancing existing codeshare relationships and developing others. We are in the final stages of negotiations to increase frequencies to a number of key destinations in order to offer more convenient travel options to our customers.”

 

The introduction of the additional flights to Jeddah gives passengers greater choices to connect through Bahrain’s efficient hub to Europe and Asia with Gulf Air and on to North America with the airline’s codeshare partner American Airlines.
