Bahrain’s Gulf Air resumes flights from Pakistan

Gulf Air flights from Pakistan to Bahrain have now resumed, the airline has announced.

Outbound flights from Islamabad, the capital, restarted today (Sunday May 31). Flights from other cities in Pakistan will resume in the coming days.

Flights from Pakistan have been suspended since March 21, as part of restrictions aimed at stopping the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Currently, only citizens, residents, transit passengers and travellers with a letter of prior permission can pass through Bahrain International Airport arrivals.

In response to the pandemic, Bahrain’s national carrier introduced a number of new health and safety measures.

These include seating passengers as far away as possible from each other, and ramping up cleaning onboard planes.

All seat belts, in-seat controls, tray tables, overhead lockers, door handles and air vents are disinfected after each flight.

Gulf Air said in a statement, “Gulf Air will continue to monitor the readiness of airports and plan the resumption of its operation to most of its network.”
