Gulf Air is set to launch direct flights to Nice on the Cote d’azur in France from July 2020.
The carrier will operate two weekly flights between Bahrain and Nice, with flights operated on an Airbus 321neo aircraft.
Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, and Chairman of Gulf Air’s Board of Directors, H.E Zayed R. Alzayani said, “It is very exciting for our national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain to reach further places and connect multiple cities in the East and the West to its hub, Bahrain.
“On the western side of our network map, and coinciding with our expansion in Europe in summer 2020, we will launch flights to Nice on the Cote d'azur as a boutique destination catering to our premium leisure travellers.
“As we welcome our new Airbus 321neo next year, we will serve our European routes with a brand new aircraft featuring flat-beds and superior in-flight entertainment system for more enjoyable journeys with Gulf Air.”
The news comes after Gulf Air announced it would be launching flights to Milan, Mykonos and Munich in July 2020.
Gulf Air will also reinstate flights to Malaga.
