THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Bahrain Air, on Friday, reiterated its plans to map itself prominently in the south of the country with four flights a week and plans to increase it to seven flights a week by this summer. Bahrain Air CEO Richard Nuttall made this announcement here.

 With the introduction of the flights, 80 per cent of Bahrain Air’s business in India comes from Kerala, with 17 flights a week across Kochi, Kozhikode and Thiruvananthapuram. Flights will depart from Bahrain at 9.25 pm and arrive at Thiruvananthapuram International Airport at 4.15 a.m. The return flight will depart at 5 am and arrive at Bahrain International Airport at 7.30 am. Flights have been scheduled for onward connection to other Gulf and Levant destinations,he said.

 “The Indian subcontinent remains a key focus area for Bahrain Air and Kerala continues to be a focal destination. Currently, there are about 3.5 lakh Keralites in Bahrain and another 4 lakh in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia. We are committed to develop Bahrain Air as as a regional carrier within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Indian subcontinent and Levant regions,” said Richard.
