Bahrain was one of the first governments to participate in the trial of the IATA Travel Pass with its national carrier to help pave the way for the re-establishment of global connectivity.

Gulf Air acting chief executive Waleed Al Alawi said: “We’re on the right track with our IATA Travel Pass trials and now we’ve added three more popular routes to be part of the trial. Our passengers can now participate when flying to Dubai, Frankfurt or Paris, even when using non-biometric passports.”

He added: “We will keep adding more routes to the list to make it more convenient to our passengers and give them the opportunity to make use of the perks that come with it.”
