Gulf Air to launch direct flights to Male

Published on : Thursday, August 12, 2021

Gulf Air recently unveiled plans to increase direct flights to the Maldives capital, Male. The flag-carrier of Bahrain has decided to offer daily flights from August 15. The carrier said the route had been popular in the recent months following a relaxation of regulations for passengers entering the country.

The airline recently upgraded its flights to Istanbul and Paris to become daily and restored its flagship double daily direct passenger flights to London Heathrow. Gulf Air began the summer season with flights to 80 per cent of its pre-pandemic network and it continued to resume operations and restore services to cities of its original 2019 destination network.

Speaking on the latest move, Waleed AlAlawi, Acting Chief Executive, Gulf Air said that the decision to increase flights to Male is a classic example of demand and supply. He said that the carrier witnessed a growing demand for travel to the Maldives, being a year-round destination and one that’s open for tourism. He mentioned that daily flights would be a fantastic feature for passengers to be able to depart or return on any day of the week depending on their calendars.
