New routes will improve market share

June 21 - Gulf Air officials on Sunday said that their newly introduced routes will increase flight frequencies around the Middle East and the airline’s performance will inevitably improve. Earlier this month, Gulf Air launched a service to Alexandria (June 2), Aleppo, Syria, (June 15) and Madinah (June 17).


"These are new moves towards regaining our status as a regional and subsequently as an international hub," said Gulf Air Chief Executive Officer, Samer Majali. The two regional Embraer 170s were acquired by Bahrain's flag-carrier as part of their major revamp. Gulf Air took delivery of the first aircraft earlier this year under a three-year dry-lease.
