Royal Jordanian and Gulf Air recently entered into a full code-share agreement to offer passengers 11-weekly flights between Amman, Jordan and Manama, Bahrain. Under the terms of the agreement, the flights will be operated by Gulf Air but marketed by both carriers.
The move comes as the existing bilateral code-share agreement between Royal Jordanian and Gulf Air, whereby the two parties were operating and marketing flights between Amman and Manama, became unilateral.
Royal Jordanian President/CEO Hussein Dabbas said: “The unilateral code share agreement is concluded with Gulf Air in the best economic interest for both carriers and passengers from Jordan and Bahrain. It will result in reducing operational expenses, needed in light of the regress in demand for travel to and from the region, due to the regional unrest.”
Gulf Air chief executive officer Samer Majali said: “The new agreement facilitates both airlines to streamline operations in the interest of serving passengers as well as carriers in response to market demand.”
Royal Jordanian passengers can now book a flight through the airline’s website from any of their destinations to Bahrain via Amman.
