Gulf Air to revamp flights schedule

Gulf Air is in the process of restructuring its flights schedule and route plan to enhance growth. In this regard, it has decided to cease operations to Milan, Athens and Zanzibar and improve frequency on the Gulf-Jakarta route.

This year, Gulf Air will also explore joint opportunities with other major airlines to see how the customers can receive further benefits through cooperation.

It has made a comprehensive review on its schedules and operations at regional and global scales, to serve its clients better and fulfill their expectations. In this respect, it has decided to increase the frequency by two flights from five weekly frequencies in the Gulf-Jakarta route.

The step is aimed at assisting the airline to meet the growing demand on travel, particularly for the Umrah and Haj traffic.

London, Paris and Frankfurt have become the prime European routes for the airlines in the Northern hemisphere. The company has decided to enhance focus on these routes in order to assimilate the incremental traffic in all market segments in both the business and leisure market.

Meanwhile, it has decided to cease operations to Milan and Athens, due to a low demand of traffic on these routes.

Aircraft capacity are to be redirected to areas where demand requires additional support. The airline has also decided to maintain services to East Africa, with three flights per week, servicing both Nairobi and Dar es Salam.

Zanzibar route will be terminated, but catered for through local feed operation. These services will cater for the growth that Gulf Air is witnessing, particularly from Asia to the African continent.

The airline has considered the popularity of Asia as a tourist destination, and will continue to grow the frequencies to meet the growing demand in Summer 2002.

It will continue to maintain a comprehensive Gulf-Asia operation to Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta and Manila.

So, what does it mean exactly, e.g. for FRA?
We've had four weeky A340 flights this winter (strangely on four consecutive days, Tue-Sun).
Before that it was a 763, and for a while the 332.
Maybe they're going to daily now. EK will soon have double-daily FRA service...


Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been...
