Gulf Air has officially relaunched its double daily direct passenger flight to Heathrow Airport London. The decision is coordinated with the latest decision by the British authorities to add Bahrain to the amber list for the incoming travellers.
This implies that passengers of the amber list have the freedom to quarantine themselves in their choice of residence for ten days instead of institutionalized quarantine for passengers arriving from red list countries.
The Chief executive Officer of Gulf Air, Waheed Al Alawi stated that London is one of their main destinations in Western Europe and they have been connecting to both empires since 1970.
The kingdom of Bahrain maintained scheduled operations throughout 2020 with this destination.
Thanks to the measures taken by the National Taskforce for combatting Covid 19. The kingdom of Bahrain is now moved from the red list to the amber list in accordance with the UK colour coding entry system.
Gulf Air began its summer season with the flights to 80 per cent of its pre-pandemic network and continues to resume operations and restore services to cities that were enlisted in its original 2019 destination network.
Back in May, the airlines announced that all its flights will operate with 100 per cent vaccinated crew including pilots and flight attendants. The airline’s acting CEO expressed his contentment to be once more able to offer more flexibility in their operations for the passengers of Bahrain and the UK.
