“We are glad to resume operations to Kuala Lumpur; a destination known for its leisure and business appeal.

“We will be operating daily flights to the Malaysian capital as it has proven to be an extremely popular destination to our passengers.”

The route will be served by the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

The news comes after Gulf Air announced it would be starting direct flights to Munich, Milan and Mykonos from July 2020.

Gulf Air will also be reinstating flights to Malaga in Spain during summer 2020. Milan will be served by Gulf Air all year round, while Munich and Mykonos will have four and three weekly flights respectively between July and September 2020.
