Bahrain’s national carrier Gulf Air said it would resume its direct operations to and from Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport on February 15 with two weekly flights on its new Airbus A320neo aircraft.
Gulf Air has been operating direct flights between Bahrain and Sri Lanka since 1981 and it is one of the airline’s main destinations in the Indian Subcontinent region.
The airline currently flies to and from Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait, Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Medina, Muscat, Cairo, Amman, Casablanca, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Athens, Bangkok, Manila, Dhaka and several destinations in India and Pakistan.
Being one of the few airlines that never stopped flying in 2020, Gulf Air continuously works closely with the government authorities across its network to resume operations as demand for travel grows, the company said.
Gulf Air boasts a flexible and agile network by adapting immediately to government guidelines and civil aviation directives. It has been responsive to continuous changes and updates.
Updates are constantly added on “gulfair.com/covid19”, including travel advice, network and new health and safety procedures.
