Gulf Air to launch to new and unusual destinations

Airline expands operations into Africa and Italy – to Rome, Entebbe and Juba

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has announced the launch of services to three more new destinations – the Italian capital Rome, Entebbe, the hub of Uganda’s commercial sector, and Juba, the capital of the newly independent country South Sudan. Services to Rome will begin from 30 November with four flights a week, Entebbe on 5 December with four weekly flights and Juba from 7 February 2012 with three flights a week.
The airline’s Chief Executive Officer Samer Majali commented that the new routes demonstrate Gulf Air’s long-term strategy to connect Bahrain and the region with new and unexplored markets that have business potential. “The commencement of our services to Entebbe and Juba firmly establishes our renewed focus in the emerging markets of the African continent, where we see a huge potential,” he said.
