Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, has revealed a new addition to its 2020 network with the popular premium leisure destination of Nice in France. In line with its strategy to add boutique leisure destinations to its network, the route will commence from July 2020 with two weekly flights operated by an Airbus 321neo aircraft.
The announcement was made during the Kuwait Aviation Show 2020 in which Gulf Air participated. Zayed R. Alzayani, minister of industry, commerce and tourism and chairman of Gulf Air’s board of directors said: “It is exciting for our national carrier to reach further places and connect multiple cities in the East and the West to its hub, Bahrain. On the western side of our network map, and coinciding with our expansion in Europe in summer 2020, we will launch flights to Nice on the Cote de azur as a boutique destination catering to our premium leisure travellers.”
As it welcomes new Airbus 321neo next year, the airline will serve the European routes with a brand new aircraft featuring flat-beds and superior in-flight entertainment system for more enjoyable journeys, he added.
