Bahrain Airport Company (BAC), the operator and managing body of Bahrain International Airport (BIA), has welcomed the inaugural GCC flight of Wataniya Airways.

The flight from Kuwait International Airport was received at BIA by a BAC delegation led by Chief Commercial Officer, Ayman Zainal.

“This inaugural flight is the beginning of what we hope will be a long and fruitful relationship between Wataniya Airways and BAC, which will, at the same time, enhance tourism and trade between our two countries,” said Zainal. “We consider the airline to be a part of the wider BIA family and stand ready to provide it with the support and assistance it requires to offer the best possible passenger experience to its customers.”

Wataniya Airways Vice Chairman Riyad Al Saeed added: “We are delighted about our newly added destination, Bahrain, to which Wataniya will fly daily at competitive fares. Bahrain is the first GCC country that Wataniya Airways has touched down in since our launch. The other four destinations we currently fly to are Najaf, Baku, Tbilisi and Sarajevo, and we have plans to launch further services in the future.”
