Gulf Air embarks on third connection to the UAE

Gulf Air’s first flight from Bahrain to Dubai Al Maktoum was celebrated by Gulf Air and airport authority staff on 8 December with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

  • Gulf Air launched a new service from its Bahrain (BAH) hub to Dubai Al Maktoum (DWC) on 8 December. The flag carrier of Bahrain now serves a total of three airports in the UAE, the two others being Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The 480-kilometre city pair will be operated daily, utilising the airline’s 136-seat A320s, which will complement the carrier’s 51 weekly flights to Dubai’s main airport. No other airline operates this airport-pair, but Emirates (thrice-daily) and flydubai (24 times weekly) provide indirect competition by flying between Bahrain and Dubai (DXB). See if this new route wins this week’s “Arch of Triumph”.
