Safi Airways, the leading International airline of Afghanistan, has increased its presence in the region with a new flight between Kabul and Bahrain, bringing its number of Middle East destinations to three.
Scheduled to commence operation from Kabul to Bahrain on 24th June, the new route is part of a codeshare agreement with Bahrain’s flag carrier Gulf Air who will operate an additional three flights per week. Safi Airways will place its flight number on the three flights operated by Gulf Air from Bahrain to Kabul, offering customers a choice of six flights a week to and from the Kingdom.
“Introduction of services to Bahrain, the Pearl of the Gulf, and our codeshare agreement with Bahrain’s national carrier, Gulf Air, will provide a choice of six weekly services between Kabul and the island state,” said Lloyd Carswell, Chief Commercial Officer of Safi Airways.
“Access to Gulf Air’s European network offers passengers in Afghanistan even more choice when planning to fly from Kabul.” He added.
Commenting on the codeshare agreement with Safi Airways, Gulf Air Chief Commercial Officer Mr. Karim Makhlouf said, “The expansion of our operations to Kabul through the codeshare agreement reinforces our commitment to strengthening our regional network and connecting regional markets. With a total of six weekly flights now between Bahrain and Kabul, travellers can take advantage of our fast and easy connections via Bahrain to fly to any of the 50 destinations across Gulf Air’s network.”
The service will operate every Monday, Tuesday and Sunday from Kabul using the A320 with 12 seats in Business Class and 132 seats in Economy.
