Aims to promote Middle East - Asia Pacific travel
Gulf Air, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier, and Thai Airways International (THAI), Thailand’s flag carrier, signed an expansion to the existing codeshare agreement effective from 28th October 2018.
The expanded codeshare agreement will extend the travel opportunities for Gulf Air passengers to fly beyond Bangkok on THAI to Hong Kong with immediate effect and to Singapore, Tokyo and Melbourne in the coming months and broaden the commercial partnership between the two companies.
Gulf Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Krešimir Kučko said: “Gulf Air has a longstanding commercial partnership with THAI that we are proud of.
“Gulf Air passengers can now have greater choice, convenience and a seamless travel experience from Bangkok to local Thai destinations as well as international destinations in the Asia-Pacific region.
“Gulf Air looks forward to grow the broader bilateral relationship with THAI.”
THAI’s President, Mr. Sumeth Damrongchaitham said: “THAI continuously works towards making improvements for maximum passenger satisfaction.
“The codeshare agreement between THAI and Gulf Air will increase our capacity through the route network and sales, as well as to make travel convenient for passengers traveling between Thailand and Bahrain in addition to the Middle East.”
In November Gulf Air will start operating its latest fleet of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on the Bahrain-Bangkok route.
This upgrade will enhance the product and service offering to the airline passengers on this popular route.
With the THAI codeshare, Gulf Air forecasts to attract more passengers from Europe and the Middle East to fly to Asia-Pacific and the Far East through the airline’s hub, Bahrain International Airport.
