Gulf Air adds two new cities to its Saudi Arabian network.

Gassim and Taif services to begin from Jan 10 with 4 flights per week

Manama -- The Kingdom of Bahrain's national carrier, Gulf Air, has announced further growth of its network in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with services to two new destinations -- Gassim and Taif, taking the total number of Saudi Arabian cities serviced by the airline to six.

Services to Gassim and Taif will begin from January 10, 2015 with four flights per week to each city.

Announcing the new destinations Gulf Air's acting chief executive officer Maher Salman Al Musallam said: "Bahrain's relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a longstanding one and our national carrier's ties to our neighbour date back to our maiden service to Dhahran in 1950. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an important market for us and the launch of services to Gassim and Taif, supplementing our Dammam, Jeddah, Riyadh and the holy city of Madinah operations, further demonstrates our commitment to connecting people to various destinations across Gulf Air's network."

"I would like to extend our warmest thanks to the Saudi authorities for facilitating and supporting this new development that I am confident will be well-received by passengers," said Al Musallam.
