Both Santorini and Mykonos will be served by the airline’s new Airbus A320neo with two weekly flights each starting from June 02 until September 22 for Santorini and starting from June 03 until 30 September for Mykonos.
The seasonal summer routes to the Greek islands will boost the airline’s network with popular boutique seaside destinations that are favourite to many tourists and families in the Kingdom of Bahrain and the region especially as demand for travel grows gradually towards the summer holidays with travel restrictions easing off in Europe.
On the occasion of the announcement, Waleed AlAlawi, acting CEO, Gulf Air, said, “We have researched and studied various destinations to add to our seasonal summer network and we’re excited to reveal Santorini and Mykonos as the new boutique additions. Reviewing potentials and listening to our customers’ feedback, we are confident that both Greek islands will provide the perfect experience for honeymooners, friends and families to spend their holidays. We will be flying to both these destinations for the first time in the history of Gulf Air and we will be the only airline in the region flying to Santorini.”
