The event was attended by the Ambassador of Greece to Kuwait and Bahrain, Dr Theodoros Theodorou, members of Gulf Air’s executive management team and travel agents from Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

“Events such as these are important in enabling greater tourism and business movement between Greece and, not only Bahrain, but the greater Middle East region,” said Maher Salman AlMusall, Gulf Air Acting Chief Executive Officer.

On the back of Gulf Air’s recent network expansion to key destinations such as Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC) and Thiruvananthapuram in India, the airline is seeing unique business and tourism opportunities in Greece alongside positive signs of the country’s economic recovery.

Reinforcing the airline’s strategy of strengthening its Middle East and North Africa (MENA) operations while maintaining strategic links to key global destinations and providing key business and tourism links, Gulf Air will resume flights to Athens starting on 16 June with four weekly flights.

The Greek Ambassador for Kuwait and Bahrain, Dr Theodoros Theodorou, said Greece was looking forward to Gulf Air’s re-entry into the Greek market along with the positive benefits it will bring to both countries.

“I thank Gulf Air’s executive management for facilitating this travel agent networking event to help promote Greece in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia,” the ambassador said.
