Gulf Air has announced that it intends to increase its frequency of its Milan route from four to six flights per week. From 1 July, the Bahraini national carrier will operate the service six days a week in two different schedules, with flights departing Bahrain at 2.15am on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays, and at 10.05am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The flights will be operated using an Airbus A320 aircraft with 16 seats in Falcon Gold class and 120 in Economy class.
Gulf Air Chief Executive Officer, Samer Majali said; “We are pleased to increase our frequency to and from Milan and add more capacity. The new route, which we launched just last month, has already become popular and we are encouraged by the bookings and high level of enquiries from potential travellers. Come summer, the demand will be even higher and therefore we have decided to upgrade the route with a new Airbus A320 aircraft, which can take more people and cargo.
“In addition, the split schedule gives flexible options for our customers to choose their arrival and departures according to their business and leisure needs. Last but not the least, the split schedule also offers more onward connectivity options for those travelling beyond Bahrain.”
“As the only carrier operating the largest network in the Middle East with over 1000 flights per week, we present an unique advantage for our European customers to reach the vast Middle East and North Africa markets with our seamless connection via Bahrain,” concluded Majali.
