Gulf Air to move operations to new BAH terminal starting January 28
Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has announced today plans to move its entire operations for inbound and outbound flights to the new Bahrain International Airport (BAH) terminal, starting January 28 when the terminal opens. The move offers an enhanced customer experience to its passengers flying through its Bahrain hub.
The airport terminal features a dedicated check-in area for Gulf Air’s Falcon Gold and Economy Class passengers, as well as a Falcon Gold lounge that is twice the size and allows greater capacity compared to the current lounge.
Taking into consideration all of the updated health and safety measures, the lounge will reflect concepts of modern premium lounges while keeping with the legacy and rich history of the 70-year-old Gulf Air brand. Many features will be maintained, while some will be introduced, such as a children's area, shower rooms, prayer space, a quiet area, live cooking stations and F&B concepts. Operational around the clock and with a capacity of more than 400 passengers, the Falcon Gold lounge is available to the airline’s Falcon Gold passengers, Black, Gold and Silver Falconflyer members.
Ahead of moving to the new premises, Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Executive Officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi said: “It will be a big day for the Kingdom of Bahrain’s aviation history and for Gulf Air. We started our operations back in 1950 in a small facility in Muharraq and soon we will see a world-class airport being officially opened to welcome the world to our beloved Kingdom. The new airport is our new home and we are proud to have a bigger, more modern home to be Gulf Air’s hub.
With our own check-in area and a brand-new Falcon Gold lounge, we are now more equipped than ever to carry and serve more passengers and expand our operations. We welcome our passengers to fly with us through the new airport which I am sure will impress everyone with its design, facilities, capacity and welcoming feel.”
