Gulf Air will be extending its operations into China in January 2024. This move represents a significant step forward for Gulf Air to bolster its Asia-Pacific presence and support connectivity under the One Belt, One Road initiative of China.
The expansion plans into China were revealed at the Bahrain-China Investment Forum hosted by the Economic Development Board of Bahrain. The Forum was part of a special delegation to the country led by H.E. Abdulla bin Adel Fakhro, Minister of Industry and Commerce.
Gulf Air’s introduction of flights to Guangzhou and Shanghai will strengthen the bilateral trade and tourism relations of over 30 years.
The schedule has been built to ensure convenient connections between China and destinations served by Gulf Air in the Middle East and Europe, and between these destinations and China. The flights will be operated with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner and two cabins of service: a business class cabin featuring one of the most spacious premium seats and an economy class cabin with state-of-the-industry seats.
