Gulf Air to Start Direct Flights to Tbilisi

The Kingdom of Bahrein’s national carrier Gulf Air is to begin flying direct to and from Tbilisi airport three times a week from June 2017.

“We are pleased to respond to passenger demand by opening this latest destination. Launching in June 2017, our new route to Tbilisi, Georgia, will cater to summer movement and leisure travellers from the GCC region,” said Maher Salman Al Musallam, Gulf Air Chief Executive Officer.

One of the largest networks in the Middle East today, Gulf Air started to operate in 1950, and now serves 43 cities in 24 countries across three continents.

“As part of our longstanding mission, we are always looking for ways to introduce and strengthen business and tourism links between key global destinations and the Kingdom of Bahrain and the region,” Maher Salman Al Musallam added. “The addition of Georgia to our network map follows extensive discussions and negotiations with the Georgian aviation authorities and we thank them for their support to date and their contribution to our efforts going forward in ensuring the success of our new route. I believe this is yet another positive development for Gulf Air in 2017 and one that will appeal to our passengers around the world.”
