GULF AIR ANNOUNCES DAILY FLIGHTS TO PARIS
[19,Sep,2002]

Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, UAE, Oman and Qatar, is pleased to announce the launch of scheduled daily flights to Paris, Charles de Gaulle.

The airline currently offers four flights per week to the French capital.

“The increased options offered by daily flights will give customers in the Gulf greater flexibility of choice when booking flights into Europe”, said James Hogan, President & Chief Executive at Gulf Air announcing the airlines brand new flight schedule between Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and France.

The daily services from the Gulf Gateways to France will commence with the Winter Schedule on October 27 and consist of four non-stop flights direct from Bahrain to Paris and three non-stop flights from the UAE. Customers also stand to benefit on their return journeys, with four non-stop weekly flights scheduled from Paris to Bahrain and three non-stop weekly flights scheduled from Paris to Abu Dhabi.

In addition to the new flights the airline is also offering daily connections to other countries in the Gulf, as well as the Middle East, the Indian sub-continent and Asia.

“Paris is ideally located to facilitate additional onward flight connections and customers en-route to Europe and North America will find services very convenient”, added Mr Hogan.

“We believe that the benefits for business and economic growth will be significant and orchestral in promoting business partnerships between the Gulf States, and Paris, a leading city in continental Europe”.

Man where have you been!!!??? Havent seen something from you for the longest time....good to have you back
Great news...actually this could work out well for GF specially if they market it well.......Emirates does not have nearly as many frequencies to CDG and GF can establish itself providing daily connections between Gulf and South Asia to Paris.There is definately demand on this sector as EK has been trying for a long time to go daily or 2X daily into CDG.

KHI747,
Emirates upgraded CDG to a daily in May this year. As of 1 October the route will be upgraded to a B777-200ER from an A330-200 and on 1 March 2003 the route will get further upgraded to a B777-300. In 2003 Emirates will most likely upgrade the route to a double-daily.
