Gulf Air adds flights to strengthen Qatar links
Gulf Air has strengthened its Qatar operations with seven more flights a week, the airline has announced.

It will offer immediate connections from Doha to Bangkok and London along with providing multiple flight selections to/from Doha throughout the day, it noted.
Samer Majali, the airline's chief executive, said the move is part of the airline's commitment to strengthening regional network and it expects continuing strong demand on the Doha route, which began 62 years ago.
The sixth daily flight between Bahrain and Doha was launched on 25 March and arrives at Doha International Airport at 15.15, departing for the return journey at 16.15.
Gulf Air will also add one more flight per week to Kabul after signing a codeshare agreement with Afghanistan's international carrier, Safi Airways.
