Flights have restarted between Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and Dubai

Bahraini national carrier Gulf Air has now resumed flights to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

It means the airline is now flying to London, Paris, Frankfurt, Manila, Athens, Cairo and a number of destinations in Pakistan.

Emirates flights between the two countries already resumed in June and take place seven times a week, and flights with Etihad are also up and running once more between the UAE capital and Manama.

Anyone that arrives at Manama airport will have to take a COVID-19 test costing BHD30 (around Dhs300) before being allowed into the country.

The country's ministry of health said passengers can pay the charges via the Be Aware app, before boarding a plane heading to the kingdom.

Bahrain News Agency also reported that people must quarantine for 10 days upon arrival.
