Gulf Air Reveals Salalah in Series of NewDestinations for 2019

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, today revealed its second destination for 2019 being Salalah, in Sultanate of Oman. Commencing 15 June and operating until 14 September 2019, Salalah will be added as a seasonal summer destination as the airline continues revealing throughout the year its further network expansion plans for 2019.

Gulf Air’s Chief Executive Officer Mr. Krešimir Kučko said “We are constantly on the look out for ways to enhance our customers’ travel experience by adding new routes and increasing flight frequencies, we chose Salalah as part of our summer schedule in response to positive customer feedback by expanding our network in tune with the demands of the season. With competitive fares and convenient flights from Gulf Air, I am sure travelers can enjoy their best summer vacation by visiting this fabulous destination.”

Salalah provides a welcome relief with its cool climate, monsoon rains, misty mountains, flowing wadis and verdant gardens while the popular Salalah Khareef Festival offers a wholesome family vacation.

Earlier in 2019, Gulf Air announced its new boutique business model concept, which will reinforce its focus on product and customer experience. As already done in the hospitality industry, Gulf Air will differentiate itself as a boutique airline that is unique in the way it operates comparing to airlines that are more volume driven. This approach will give the airline a competitive advantage that will translate in its new fleet, new Falcon Gold class offering, new exclusive products, new destinations for 2019 and its presence in the new terminal at Bahrain International Airport due to open towards the end of the year.

With the new business model concept, Gulf Air aims to grow strategically in size, expand to more boutique destinations in 2019 and continue its fleet modernization programme by receiving additional 2 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner’s and 4 Airbus A320neos this year.

Fares and flight schedule can be found online via the official Gulf Air website gulfair.com, by contacting its 24-hour Worldwide Contact Centre on (+973) 17373737 in Bahrain or any Gulf Air sales offices and approved travel agencies.
