Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain – 16 March 2017: Gulf Air, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier, has joined forces with Toronto Travel and Visit Russia, taking select GCC media members from Bahrain and Kuwait to the Russian capital Moscow for a 4-day visit where they experienced the comforts of flying with Gulf Air, stayed at two of the leading five star hotels in Moscow and enjoyed some of the city’s most notable touristic sights and tours.
Gulf Air’s direct Moscow route is further supported by a Special Prorate Agreement (SPA) agreement between the airline and Russian carrier S7 Airlines enabling Gulf Air passengers to take flights beyond Moscow to and from the Russian cities of St Petersburg, Kazan, Samara, Volgograd, Rostov, Nizhny Novgorod, Perm, Ufa, Sochi and Voronezh. With a combined fare that is more attractive than those purchased separately, the SPA agreement allows passengers to purchase only one ticket, at a more competitive fare, for their entire journey instead of separate tickets for each individual carrier.
Gulf Air’s direct four weekly flights to Moscow Domodedovo Airport operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Flights to and from Moscow can be booked online at gulfair.com, the airline’s one-stop-shop website, where customers can find a suite of additional online services offering hotel bookings, car rentals and travel insurance. Fare / booking queries can also be directed to the airline’s 24-hour Worldwide Contact Centre on (+973) 17373737, or any Gulf Air sales offices and approved travel agencies.
