Gulf Air has announced the upcoming launch of twice weekly services between Kuwait City and Larnaka in response to increased demand from the State of Kuwait.
The airline is set to offer direct, twice weekly connections between Kuwait and Cyprus starting from October 26, 2014.
The new service is expected to operate on Wednesdays and Sundays departing Kuwait at 11:00 local time with return flights departing Larnaka at 14:05 local time. Bahrain-based passengers will have the choice of thrice weekly Bahrain-Larnaka operations and convenient six daily flights between Kuwait and Bahrain providing connections to the airline’s newest Kuwait-Larnaka service.
Maher Salman Al Musallam, Acting CEO at Gulf Air, commented: “Gulf Air’s latest development sees us building upon the positive response we have already seen to our Kuwait-Istanbul route as we strive to give our GCC passengers attractive connections and direct travel options. Launching the new, direct Kuwait-Larnaka route caters to travel demand and is one more step towards offering our passengers simpler travel arrangements while we continue to offer convenient connections between Bahrain and Kuwait.”
Gulf Air is already operating direct flights between Bahrain and Kuwait and Bahrain and Larnaka. The airline’s existing Kuwait operations consist of six daily flights while it serves Larnaka with three weekly flights direct from Bahrain.
Gulf Air flights between Kuwait International Airport and Larnaka International Airport will be operated by an A320-ER aircraft in a two-class configuration of 14 Falcon Gold seats and 96 seats in Economy.
