Gulf Air, the flag carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, will resume its seasonal direct flights between Bahrain and Malaga-Costa del Sol airport next Saturday, July 2, with two weekly frequencies (Thursdays and Saturdays), which will operate until September 29.

This flight operation is due to the increase in demand that the company is perceiving between the Costa del Sol and the Middle East, as well as to selected destinations in Asia and the Indian Ocean. Gulf Air will serve this route with its flagship Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.

Gulf Air continues to maintain its growth thanks to its boutique airline model, which consists of offering convenient and fast connections to key destinations in the Middle East and Asia through the new Bahrain airport, always with exquisite onboard service,” said Eva Bretos, director of Gulf Air’s representative office in Spain.

In response to the recovery in demand for international flights and the growth achieved by the airline in recent years, Gulf Air offers other connections from Malaga via Bahrain to destinations such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), Colombo (Sri Lanka), Malé (Maldives), Bombay (India), Muscat (Oman), Riyadh and Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).

In addition to connections, Gulf Air also offers a free stopover service in Bahrain, one of the most emerging destinations in the Middle East. The airline has developed different packages tailored to the needs of travelers to discover this kingdom.
