Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain – 23 February 2017: Gulf Air, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier, has joined forces with Aktina Travel Group, the leading travel organization in Greece, taking select GCC media members from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to the Greek capital Athens for a 4-day visit where they experienced the comforts of flying with Gulf Air, stayed at one of the leading five star hotels in Athens and enjoyed some of the city’s most notable touristic sights and tours.
Operating four weekly flights between Bahrain and Athens on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, Gulf Air recently enhanced its flight schedule to the Greek capital with newly introduced morning flights to complement its afternoon flights – giving passengers more flexible and convenient flight timings and allowing for better connectivity for passengers from across the GCC wishing to visit Greece. The airline has also promoted the Kingdom of Bahrain in Greece, launching a Gulf Air-sponsored Bahrain travel guide in Athens “101 Things to See and Do in Bahrain” – a comprehensive travel guide to Bahrain, helping to inform potential visitors about Bahrain’s tourism and hospitality assets.
