A celebratory event took place in Bahrain with the Georgian Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Sultanate of Oman, George Janjgava, joining Bahrain Civil Aviation Affairs officials, Bahrain Airport officials and members of Gulf Air’s executive management team….oh yes…and some photo-bombing passengers from the first flight.
Gulf Air’s three times weekly flights between Bahrain and Tbilisi began on 23 June, but already due to high passenger demand, two additional flights will operate over and above the original schedule. Inaugural flight celebrations were held in the Georgian capital to herald the new service.
- Gulf Air celebrated the launch of its three times weekly service to the Georgian capital Tbilisi (TBS) on 23 June. The route is its eighth into Europe, joining Athens, Frankfurt, Istanbul Atatürk, Larnaca, London Heathrow, Moscow Domodedovo and Paris CDG. Commenting on the launch Gulf Air CEO, Maher Salman Al Musallam, said: “I am delighted Gulf Air is directly connecting Bahrain and Georgia – and witnessing such high demand as we commence operations is a positive indication of what is to come. I look forward to seeing passengers from across the GCC and MENA region fly with us, enjoying the Gulf Air product and service offering en-route to experiencing the diverse appeal of this destination.” Flights from the airline’s Bahrain (BAH) hub are operated by its A320 fleet and faces no direct competition.
