Gulf Air has announced plans to increase direct flights to Malé, the Maldives’ capital.
Bahrain’s national carrier will begin daily flights on August 15th.
According to the carrier, the route has been increasingly popular in recent months as a result of a reduction of requirements for travellers entering the nation.
Gulf Air acting chief executive Waleed AlAlawi reacted on the increased daily service to Male, saying, “The decision to increase our flights to Malé is a classic illustration of demand and supply.”
“We saw an increase in demand for travel to the Maldives, which is a year-round location that is open to tourism.
“Having daily flights is a terrific advantage for passengers to be able to depart or return on any day of the week based on their calendars.”
The airline recently increased its daily flights to Istanbul and Paris and reintroduced its iconic double-daily direct passenger flights to London Heathrow.
Gulf Air began the summer season with flights to 80% of its pre-pandemic network, and it has since resumed operations and restored services to cities on its original 2019 destination network.
