Gulf Air to restore over 90% of India schedule this summer

Before COVID-19, airline operated 82 flights per week between India and Bahrain

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain has started to ramp up its operations to the State of India beginning with 49 weekly flights this month. As the summer season approaches, the airline announces that by mid-May, Gulf Air will increase its weekly flights to 75 which is more than 90% of its pre-pandemic schedule to India.

Commenting on this network restoration, Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Executive Officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi commented: “We are very excited to restore such an integral part of our airline’s operations. The national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain never stopped flying during the peak of the pandemic making it one of the most experienced and safest airlines to fly during these times, and today we are growing closer to our full network with some new additions coming online this summer such as Milan, Manchester and Rome. We are working on frequencies and connectivity to offer more choices and more convenience to our passengers and are confident that the months ahead will feature more milestones and success stories to tell”.

Gulf Air has been operating direct flights between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Republic of India since 1960 and its network of Indian cities has always been key within the Gulf Air’s global network. Being one of the few airlines that continued scheduled commercial operations, Gulf Air continuously works closely with the governments authorities throughout the destinations on its network to resume its operations as pandemic restrictions ease and the aviation industry recovers. Updates are constantly added on including travel advice, network and new health and safety procedures.

Being one of the few airlines that never stopped flying during the pandemic, Gulf Air has recently received the Skytrax Five Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating after a vigorous audit by Skytrax Research that took place between November and December 2021, in flying safely throughout the pandemic and enhancing its airport and onboard protocols to combat the spread of COVID-19. The airline also received APEX’s Five Star Major Official Airline Rating; an award based solely on certified passengers’ feedback.

Anlaufstelle in Pune


Die Kooperation zwischen Karlsruhe und dem indischen Pune ist einen Schritt weiter: Im Januar 2014 wurde im "MCCIA Trade Tower", 403, Senapati Bapat Road, eine direkte Karlsruher Anlaufstelle mit den Repräsentantinnen Iris Becker und Winnie Kulkarni von "Let's Bridge IT" in Pune eröffnet.

Durch Erfolg und Ausbau der vielfältigen Aktivitäten - ob Infos rund um den Standort Karlsruhe, aktiv Kontakte zu indischen Firmen halten oder deutsche Firmen aus der TRK in und um Pune bekannter machen - erfolgte im März 2018 ein Umzug in neue Räumlichkeiten, auch durch die Erweiterung um die Repräsentanz des Landes Baden-Württembergs in Maharashtra sowie das Marketingbüro der „Hochschul Föderation Südwest“.
