Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, and Aegean Airlines, Greece’s largest carrier, have entered into a codeshare partnership.
The airlines will codeshare on flights from Bahrain, via Athens, to and from the European cities of Brussels and Rome while travellers from Geneva, Milan and Vienna can now make use of the codeshare on flights, via Athens, to the Kingdom of Bahrain with Gulf Air.
Network Planning and Alliances Director of Aegean Airlines, Tassos Raftopoulos, said: “We welcome this new codeshare with Gulf Air and we strongly believe that the combined networks of our two carriers will offer our guests new travel opportunities not only between Greece and Bahrain, but also beyond.”
Gulf Air operates four direct flights per week between Bahrain and the Greek capital in addition to operating double daily flights, or more, to 10 regional cities across the GCC and MENA region.
Gulf Air Chief Commercial Officer Ahmed Janahi said: “Our commitment to strengthening Gulf Air’s network is reinforced with this codeshare agreement, allowing us to connect our passengers to popular destinations across Europe that extend beyond our network, while giving passengers from more cities in Europe the distinctive opportunity to visit the Kingdom of Bahrain while experiencing our unique product and service offering.”
