Gulf Air, Emirates activate codeshare agreement

Manama, May 18 (BNA): Gulf Air, Bahrain’s national carrier, has announced the start of a codeshare agreement with the world’s largest international airline, Emirates Airline, within the framework of a strategic partnership between the two companies.

In the initial phase, Gulf Air will apply its code to a number of Emirates destinations in Europe and the Far East, thus increasing the number of destinations for Gulf Air customers flying from its network.

Destinations include, Denpasar Bali, Indonesia; Brazil; Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; and the Czech Republic.

Customers can combine tickets, check-in and baggage transfers and benefit from competitive fares, while premium passengers will also have access to Emirates lounges in Dubai.

Gulf Air CEO, Captain Walid Al-Alawi, welcomed the strategic partnership, indicating that it is a major added value for travelers, given the UAE’s prestigious position in the global commercial aviation sector.

“The first phase of the codeshare agreement was signed during the Bahrain International Airshow in November 2022, and includes destinations in line with Gulf Air’s growth strategy. Providing additional travel options for passengers demonstrates our commitment to enriching the travel experience of our millions of passengers.” He said.

“Entering this partnership with another highly regarded airline allows us to actually expand our network, enhance our offering and provide an even more seamless travel experience. With the launch of the new partnership with Emirates Airlines, Gulf Air has now entered into codeshare agreements with 17 partner airlines.”
