Doha, Qatar: Qatar Airways has announced that it will increase the frequency of its flights to Bahrain from June 15, as direct flights between the two countries begin today.
The announcement came as Qatar's national airline resumes its daily flights to the neighboring Gulf country today, May 25, 2023, with a daily flight. It added that starting from mid-June there will be three flights daily to Bahrain.
Bookings for three flights from June 15, scheduled to be at 8:40am, 3:30pm, and 8pm, are already open on its website.
The airline stated on its social media, "Qatar Airways daily flights to Bahrain are starting today. We will increase frequency to 3 daily flights from June 15."
Bahrain's Gulf Air is also expected to operate multiple daily services between Bahrain and Qatar, increasing capacity on the route, stated aviation analyst Alex Macheras in a recent tweet.
The Gulf countries announced a restoration of ties last month when their respective foreign delegates met on April 12 at the headquarters of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) General Secretariat in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.
