On April 2, 1985, the first Lufthansa flight touched down on the tarmac of Bahrain International Airport in Manama, adding Bahrain to Lufthansa's impressive global network. Today Lufthansa serves Bahrain seven times a week and passengers from the Northern Gulf region benefit from great flexibility on their travels to Frankfurt and 204 destinations world wide. The early morning arrivals allow passengers to spend a full day in Germany or to travel onward with lean connections to Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia.
“Bahrain is an important destination in Lufthansa’s growing Middle East portfolio”, Joachim Steinbach, Lufthansa’s Vice President Sales & Services, Southeast Europe, Africa, Middle East & Pakistan, said, expressing his congratulations to the jubilee. “The airport is a main gateway to Bahrain as well as to eastern Saudi Arabia – a region which has a strong foothold in the oil and energy as well as the financial sector.”
