Gulf Air will increase its flights between Bahrain and Cairo from 12 to 14 weekly flights (double daily) from 24th August to meet high passenger demand following successful negotiations between the Kingdom of Bahrain’s Civil Aviation Authority and the Arab Republic of Egypt’s Civil Aviation Authority, to increase air traffic rights between the two countries.

Bahrain’s national carrier is well positioned to link regional travelers to Cairo and allow seamless movement from the Egyptian capital to several key regional and Asian destinations with excellent connectivity via Bahrain International Airport to prominent cities in the Gulf, the Indian Sub-continent and the Far East such as Dubai, UAE, Bangkok, Thailand and Delhi, India in less than two hours.

Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Ahmed Janahi said: “Gulf Air’s increased Cairo service will mean a greater connection to one of our national carrier’s longstanding routes. We are always looking to satisfy the high demand to and from Cairo and cater to passenger needs on this popular route. With twice daily flights between Bahrain and Cairo we are offering enhanced schedule flexibility for our travelers.”

The new flight schedule is as follows:

Flight Number Departure Airport Departure Time Arrival Airport Arrival Time Frequency
GF071 Bahrain 10:15 Cairo 12:20 Daily
GF070 Cairo 13:10 Bahrain 17:25 Daily
GF079 Bahrain 17:15 Cairo 19:20 Daily
GF080 Cairo 20:05 Bahrain 00:10+1 Daily
