Gulf Air press release: Gulf Air Awarded as Fastest Growing Airlinein Middle East

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, was recently awarded as the Fastest Growing Airline in the Middle East region at the 19th Airline Marketing Workshop organized by Athens International Airport in the Greek capital. The event takes place annually in Athens and includes all carriers that operate to and from Athens International Airport. The award ceremony was attended by Gulf Air’s representative who accepted the award on behalf of the airline.

Gulf Air’s Chief Commercial Officer Mr. Vincent Coste said on this occasion: “This is a great achievement for Gulf Air to be awarded as the fastest growing airline in the Middle East region by the authorities in Athens International Airport. Athens is one of our important European destinations and the route sees steady growth rates year on year. The upcoming summer season will see increased flights to and from Athens as it is a popular route by many of our passengers. We thank the organizing committee of this event for recognizing the hard work for the airline and we will always work hand in hand to further strengthen our position in the Greek market”.
