Bahrain’s Gulf Air launches new stopover travel deals

  • Life

Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, has announced the launch of new stopover travel packages designed to promote the country as a tourist destination to its global customer base.




The new stopover programme has been launched in response to the directives of the executive committee, chaired by Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa,

in collaboration with the Ministry of Interior’s Nationality, Passport & Residence Affairs (NPRA), Bahrain Tourism & Exhibitions Authority (BTEA) and local destination management agencies.

Eligible passengers on Gulf Air can now explore Bahrain en-route before reaching their final destination, the airline said in a statement.

It added that the stopover packages, available for both Falcon Gold and economy travellers for the duration of 1-4 days, can be booked via the airline’s website and worldwide contact centre.

The packages comprise a wide range of hotel accommodations, day tours and excursions for authentic Bahraini experiences.

Bahrain Tourism & Exhibitions Authority’s CEO, Sheikh Khaled bin Humood Al Khalifa, said:

“We are pleased to collaborate with Gulf Air yet again through the Bahrain stopover packages project. We’ve always thought of Gulf Air as an innate partner of tourism promotion of Bahrain, and we believe this new project will be well received by passengers of the national carrier, and will encourage them to stopover in Bahrain and hopefully come back to discover more.”

Gulf Air’s CEO, Kresimir Kucko, added:

“Bahrain has a lot to offer and we are glad to end the eventful 2018 with the launch of the stopover package. When booking online, all our eligible customers will have the opportunity to add up to four nights to spend time in the island and explore its treasures. Our main goal is to promote Bahrain tourism to the global audience.”

The airline has defined 2018 as the #YearOfChange as it involved many changes to the business such as a new brand, new livery, new fleet, new uniform, new destinations and a new strategy.



Gulf Air received five Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and one Airbus A320neo aircraft this year and launched flights to six new destinations – Bangalore and Calicut in India, Alexandria and Sharm El Shaikh in Egypt, Casablanca in Morocco and Baku in Azerbaijan.
