Gulf Air to operate daily flights to Maldives

Gulf Air confirms on increasing their flight operations to Maldives with daily flight landings to commence on coming Sunday, 15 August.

Moreover, the commercial airline will have at least one flight landing per day throughout the week from commencement of their operations. The news was confirmed by Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Executive Waleed Al-Alawi.

Furthermore, Mr. Al-Alawi attested on the airline’s decision on increasing flights to Maldives reflects the growing demands of tourists from the region who wish to fly to the island nation on vacation.

In 2020, the airline had temporarily ceased its operations to Maldives following the island nation’s decision for a border closure in light of Covid-19 pandemic outbreak.

However, Gulf Air was still among the first batch of international airlines to resume their operations to Maldives after the borders reopened in July 2020.

The latest decision of Gulf Air to hike their operations is perceived as a positive sign by Ministry of Tourism, which expects further recovery of the country’s tourism industry.
