Gulf Air Operates Inaugural Flight to Santorini

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, recently celebrated its inaugural flight to Santorini in Greece as flight GF034 was welcomed into Santorini International Airport with a water cannon salute and, upon arrival, a number of airport officials joined the airline’s flying crew for commemorative photographs.

Before departing from Bahrain International Airport, passengers were handed special boarding passes and commemorative certificates in celebration of the airline’s very first flight from the Kingdom of Bahrain to the Greek island of Santorini. The flight was operated by Gulf Air’s new aircraft the Airbus A320neo which features 16 Falcon Gold seats and 120 economy class seats.

 Commenting on the recent addition of Santorini to Gulf Air’s summer network, Waleed AlAlawi, acting CEO, Gulf Air, said, “Earlier this month, Gulf Air operated its inaugural flight to Mykonos and with today’s launch of Santorini flights, the airline aims to boost its network with popular boutique seaside destinations that are favourite to many tourists and families in the Kingdom of Bahrain and the region. These strategic additions come in place as the demand for travel gradually grows towards the summer holiday with travel restrictions easing off in Europe”.

 Both Mykonos and Santorini will be served until end of September with two weekly frequencies. Flights can be booked online at, by calling the Gulf Air Contact Center, or through any Gulf Air sales offices and approved travel agencies.
