Gulf Air introduces new health and safety measures

Gulf Air has introduced a number of new health and safety measures on all of its flights.

Passengers will now be sat as far away as possible from each other to maintain the required social distances, depending on the flight load.

Cleaning has also been ramped up onboard planes, with all surfaces such as seat belts, in-seat controls, tray tables, overhead lockers, door handles and air vents disinfected after each flight.

Gulf Air is also recommending that all passengers wear a mask and use disposable gloves while travelling.

Bahrain’s national carrier said in a statement, “Gulf Air is working closely with the concerned authorities in the Kingdom of Bahrain and all airports of its network to take all precautionary and preventive measures in order to ensure the health and safety of the passengers and crew.”

Current restrictions mean that only citizens, residents and travellers with a letter of prior permission can enter Bahrain, while transit passengers are allowed to pass through the airport.

Gulf Air is currently operating flights to and from London Heathrow, Paris, Frankfurt and Manila, while flights to all other destinations have been temporarily suspended until further notice.
