Gulf Air and Thai Airways Expand Codeshare Agreement

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.”

Earlier in the summer of 2018, the Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, and Chairman of Gulf Air Board of Directors Mr. Zayed R. Alzayani and Gulf Air CEO Mr. Krešimir Kučko met THAI executive management and discussed strategic partnership opportunities and other commercial projects between the two airlines.

Moreover, last Sunday Mr. Alzayani held a meeting with the Thai Minister of Commerce Mr. Sontirat Sontijirawong at the Ministry premises, in the presence of Thai Ambassador to the Kingdom of Bahrain Mr. Thanis Na Songkhla and a Thai economic delegation accompanying the minister. During the meeting, the minister stressed the keenness of the Bahraini leaders and government to enhance economic and trade relations between Bahrain and Thailand.
