Bahrain Tourism and Exhibition Authority (BTEA) has succeeded in luring over 10,000 Russian tourists via charter program operated by the leading travel and tourism company of the world; Coral Travel. This was part of the BTEA’s initiations to draw tourists from new markets to the Kingdom of Bahrain, as the first charter flight was introduced by Coral Travel from Moscow to the Kingdom at the end of October 2018, with two weekly flights on an average.


To quote H.E. Shaikh Khaled bin Humood Al Khalifa, CEO of the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority, “Through the cooperation efforts between Coral Travel and BTEA, the total number of Russian tourists has reached to 10,075 over the past six months alone. The tourists’ occupancy rate is currently at 9 nights, resulting in an increase in the hotel occupancy rate in the Kingdom of Bahrain; and the total number of tourist nights has reached to 34,578 nights, with the total expenditure of tourists arriving within the program itself amounting to BD 7,217,730.”


“Each flight carries 220 passengers staying in 30 hotels across the Kingdom, which aids in familiarizing them with the rich history of Bahrain and its advanced facilities, which contributes to the promotion of tourism destinations in the Kingdom and also enhances the contribution of the tourism sector to the Gross Domestic Product. Therefore, we will continue to work closely with all our representative offices to bring in tourist groups from around the world, equivalent in size to those organized by our representative office in Russia,” H.E. Shaikh Khaled bin Humood Al Khalifa added.


This comes as part of the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority attempt to add to the Economic Vision 2030 by developing promotional plans and make the most of the new markets that will contribute to the sustainability of the tourism sector as one of the prime sectors contributing to the Kingdom’s economy, as well as positively affect the initiative to diversify the Kingdom’s national income.
