Gulf Traveller To Manchester?

Tue Aug 12, 2003 5:55 am

Gulf Traveller was planning to fly from Manchester and Birmingham in Dec 03, has anything materialised or has anyone heard anything regarding these services.

I believe the timescale would be more towards late 2004 or even 2005.

Any chance of GF resuming its AUH-MAN flights (previously via GVA using the 763) after a long period of absence? I doubt it, with both EK and QR offer convenient connections to the Indian Subcontinent and beyond.

No chance. The GF CEO James Hogan said that there is great potential for Gulf Traveller as the majority of passengers from northern Britain tend to be "economy" payers with few business travellers. As for EK and QR....watch this space!
