MANAMA: Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its operations between the UAE and Bahrain.

Since launching services to Bahrain on August 22, 2004, Etihad has carried more than 2.5 million guests between the two GCC countries.

Today, the airline operates 28 flights per week and carries 200,000 guests annually to and from Bahrain, using an Airbus A320 aircraft.

Etihad’s flights to Bahrain provide a vital link between the kingdom and major markets in Asia, Indian subcontinent, Mena and the US, via the airline’s home and hub, Abu Dhabi.

Earlier this year, Etihad Airways and Bahrain national carrier Gulf Air signed a codeshare agreement in which each placed their flight codes on services operated by the other between and beyond Abu Dhabi and Manama, strengthening the offering of both airlines.
