Gulf Air has increased its Moscow service from four weekly to daily flights from the end of October.
The non-stop service, service to/from Domodedovo International Airport in the Russian capital, is further supported by a special prorate agreement (SPA) agreement between the airline and Russian carrier S7 Airlines, which allows passengers to purchase one ticket to cover both carriers.
Customers from Bahrain can book onward journeys to various Russian cities, including St Petersburg, Kazan, Samara, Volgograd, Rostov, Nizhny Novgorod, Perm, Ufa, Ekaterinburg, Novosibirsk and Krasnoyarsk. The combined fare is offered at a more competitive rate for the entire journey, instead of separate tickets for each individual carrier.
"By adding frequencies and enhancing our product offering we are making Moscow more accessible than ever for our customers travelling from across the region, providing them with greater flight selections for both direct and transit travel to and from the Russian capital,” said Ahmed Janahi, Gulf Air chief commercial officer.
“We believe this positive development will boost our competitive edge in the market and anticipate positive passenger response and heightened demand as a result on our popular Moscow route."
Gulf Air flights to and from Moscow can be booked online at www.gulfair.com.
