Gulf Air Starts | Daily Flights to Paris After French ‘Green List’ Nod

MANAMA: Bahrain’s national carrier Gulf Air has started its services to the French capital from Monday, August 2.

 This is in line with the latest decision by the French authorities to add the Kingdom of Bahrain to their Green List.

 Being on the green list will mean that citizens and residents of Bahrain will be accepted to travel to France without the need to quarantine. Passengers aged 12 and above must present a proof of a complete vaccination which is authorized by the European Medicines Agency or a negative PCR test that is conducted within 72 hours before the flight or a certificate of recovery from COVID-19 for non-vaccinated passengers.

 Gulf Air began the summer season with flights to 80% of its pre-pandemic network and it continued to resume operations and restore services to cities of its original 2019 destination network.

 The airline currently flies to and from Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait, Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Medina, Muscat, Cairo, Amman, Casablanca, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Athens, Istanbul, Tbilisi, Larnaca, Bangkok, Manila, Singapore, Dhaka, Colombo, the Maldives and several destinations in India and Pakistan.

 Commenting on the move, Gulf Air’s Acting CEO Captain Waleed AlAlawi said: “This is wonderful news for citizens and residents of the Kingdom of Bahrain to be able to travel on Gulf Air to Paris on our newly introduced Airbus A321neoLR on any day of the week and with relaxed restrictions thanks to the newly announced green list status.”

 “Paris has always been a major European point that we have been operating since 1976 and it was one of the destinations we always continued flying to during the pandemic. Starting from the 2nd of August, we are proud to resume our pre-pandemic daily frequency, offering maximum convenience to our passengers,” he added.
