Safi Airways sign codeshare agreement with Gulf Air

Gulf Air and Afghanistan’s international carrier Safi Airways has signed a codeshare agreement Kabul-Bahrain route as of April 23, Gulf Air officials announced.

Under the agreement, both airlines will jointly market and promote six flights per week with each airline operating three flights.

Accordingly, Gulf Air, which has been operating a twice-weekly service to Kabul, will add one more flight per week, a statement from the airline company said.

Gulf Air chief executive Samer Majali quoted by The Gulf Daily News said, “Our commitment to strengthening our regional network and connecting regional markets is reinforced in our partnership with Safi Airways.”

Mr. Majali further added, “With a total of 12 weekly flights now between Bahrain and Kabul, travellers can take advantage of our fast and easy connections through Bahrain to fly to any of the 50 destinations across Gulf Air’s network.

He also said, “Kabul is a key market for Gulf Air, where we have been witnessing a high-demand since we launched our service in June 2011 and we hope to further develop the market to cater to the fast-growing traffic from Kabul by connecting across the entire Gulf Air network.”

“Gulf Air flights between Bahrain and Kabul serve to enhance and strengthen the airline’s regional network while catering to a large migrant Afghan population worldwide that extends from the US, to the UK, Germany and the UAE,” he added.

The combined capacity will provide greater flight options for passengers in Kabul to travel to their preferred destinations with short transit times at Bahrain airport in both directions.

The frequency, in particular, allows convenient two-way connections via Bahrain for Gulf Air passengers flying to/from Frankfurt, Copenhagen, Paris, Rome, London, Bangkok, Manila, Jeddah, Riyadh and Cairo on Gulf Air and to US and Canada through its codeshare partner American Airlines.
