Gulf Air now offers flights to Amsterdam from Bahrain

You can now book flights to Amsterdam from Bahrain through Gulf Air thanks to a codeshare agreement with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

Bahrain’s national airline will place a GF code on KLM flights from Bahrain to Amsterdam, and on flights from Amsterdam to Frankfurt.

KLM will place its KL code on Gulf Air flights from Bahrain to Sialkot, Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar in return.

The news comes after the two airlines signed a Memorandum of Understanding.

Gulf Air’s chief commercial officer Vincent Coste said, “We are glad to announce the partnership with KLM and expand our network with a service between the Kingdom of Bahrain and The Netherlands.

“With this important commercial agreement, we are offering our passengers a connection to Amsterdam using a Gulf Air ticket.”

He added: “I would like to congratulate KLM on their 100th anniversary and wish them continued success for many years to come.”

Gulf Air has been expanding its roster of destinations of late, with direct flights from Bahrain to the Maldives starting this week.

Earlier this month, low-cost airline SalamAir announced direct flights between Bahrain and Muscat would start in November.
