Gulf Air to increase Maldives direct flight frequency

The Bahrain-based carrier will offer daily flights to the island nation from 15 August

Gulf Air has unveiled plans to increase the frequency of its direct flights to the Maldives.

Bahrain’s national airline will offer daily flights to the capital, Malé, from 15 August.

The carrier stated that the route had been gaining popularity in recent months following a relaxation of regulations for passengers entering the country. Gulf Air acting chief executive Waleed Al Alawi commented: “The decision to increase our flights to Malé is a classic example of supply and demand. We’ve witnessed a growing demand for travel to the Maldives, being a year-round destination and one that’s open for tourism.

“Going daily with our flights is a fantastic feature [allowing] passengers to depart or return on any day of the week.”

The airline recently upped its flight frequency to Istanbul and Paris to service both cities daily and restored its flagship double-daily direct flights to London Heathrow.

Gulf Air continues to restore its services to cities included in its pre-pandemic network.
