Air increases flights to Colombo
As part of its new winter schedule, Bahrain's national carrier Gulf
Air will increase its flights to Colombo to nine flights per week.
Announcing the schedule that will come into effect from October 30,
Gulf Air Chief Commercial Officer Karim Makhlouf said, "Our Colombo
service, which we started last October with four flights a week, has
been well patronised by our customers registering over 75% load factor
We are also witnessing over 50% increase in traffic from key European
cities as well as from the GCC to this popular holiday destination
indicating the need for additional flights." "Therefore, we will
increase our flights to nine per week with convenient morning and
evening flights. All our European flights provide excellent connectivity
to Colombo via our efficient Bahrain hub so whether it is the European
holidaymakers or the Sri Lankan expatriate community living in Europe,
they now have more choices to fly to Sri Lanka."
"Our aim is to offer our customers the best network of destinations,
excellent connectivity to different market segments, newer aircraft,
consistent and high quality products and above all, a real
value-for-money to our customers," Makhlouf concluded.
