Gulf Air Goes Daily to Istanbul

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

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. 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. Offering our valued passengers a daily service to and from Istanbul meets their travel needs, further reinforcing the strong historic ties between Bahrain and Turkey and our airline’s key role in encouraging two-way travel, trade, tourism and investment opportunities.”

Operating double daily flights or more to 10 regional cities, Gulf Air provides excellent connectivity for passengers travelling to/from Istanbul with connections to various cities in the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Asia. The airline’s network currently serves 42 cities in 25 countries spanning three continents.

Gulf Air flights can be booked online at gulfair.com, the airline’s one-stop-shop website, where customers can find a suite of additional online services offering hotel bookings, car rental and travel insurance.
