Gulf Air celebrates 40th anniversary flying to Cyprus


Bahrain’s national carrier, Gulf Air, recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of its direct operations to/from Larnaka, Cyprus.


The airline celebrated by giving a number of regional media travel reporters the opportunity to explore the island with a familiarisation trip jointly hosted by the Cyprus Tourism Organisation.


With the aim of promoting one of the airline’s key network destinations, participants had the opportunity to experience Gulf Air’s onboard and on-the-ground offering including the airline’s premium onboard product and its Gulf Air Falcon Gold Lounge at Bahrain International Airport.


Additionally, the familiarisation trip included tours across Cyprus including Larnaka, Pafos and Limassol giving participants an insight into what the island has to offer for tourists.


Launched in 1976, Gulf Air’s direct five weekly flights to and from Larnaka International Airport depart Bahrain on Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.


“Boasting one of the largest Middle East networks with double daily flights or more to 10 regional cities, Bahrain’s national carrier is well positioned to link the Gulf region and Cyprus with excellent connectivity via Bahrain International Airport in less than 90 minutes,” read an official Gulf Air statement.
