Gulf Air celebrates 40 Years of Cyprus service
Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of its direct operations to and from the city of Larnaca in the Republic of Cyprus.
A number of regional media members got an opportunity to explore the Mediterranean island with a familiarization trip jointly hosted by The Cyprus Tourism Organization and the Gulf carrier as part of the celebration.
With the aim of promoting one of the airline’s key network destinations, participants had the opportunity to experience Gulf Air’s onboard and on-the-ground offering including the airline’s premium onboard product and its dedicated Gulf Air Falcon Gold Lounge at Bahrain International Airport. Additionally, the familiarisation trip included tailored tours to a number of Cypriot cities including Larnaca, Paphos and Limassol giving participants an insight into what Cyprus has to offer such as historical and cultural sites, nature reserves, beaches and mountain activities as well as luxury accommodation and rich culinary options.
Launched in 1976, Gulf Air’s direct five weekly flights to and from Larnaca International Airport depart Bahrain on Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays
