Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, and EgyptAir, the national airline of Egypt, announced the expansion of their codeshare partnership, bringing more travel opportunities for their customers.
Building upon the success of their existing codeshare relationship, Gulf Air will be adding its ‘GF’ code on EgyptAir’s flights to Aswan, Asyut, Hurghada, Luxor and Sharm el-Sheikh. This expansion further enhances seamless travel options for Gulf Air and EgyptAir passengers including thru-check-in.
This cooperation also supports the strengthening of commercial cooperation between the two airlines.
Captain Waleed A. Hameed AlAlawi, Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, said:
“This is a welcoming and positive announcement for Gulf Air, EgyptAir and our customers, given the current challenging industry climate. Customers of both airlines have more options to fly and feel reassured with all the extra health and safety measures in place to ensure a safe journey. The relationship between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Arab Republic of Egypt has always been strong and we feel proud to be working closely with our friends in EgyptAir. I look forward to seeing this partnership grow.”
Captain Roshdy Zakaria, EgyptAir Chief Executive Officer, said:
“The current situation requires all partners to enhance their cooperation ties and to exert many efforts in serving their loyal customers. From this view, EgyptAir and Gulf Air have worked on enhancing their partnership by offering EgyptAir domestic destinations to Gulf Air customers who will enjoy the utmost levels of hospitality and health procedures onboard our flights.”
