Air India Express launches Bahrain - Kannur flights

Manama: Bahrain Airport Company (BAC), the operator and managing body of Bahrain International Airport (BIA), welcomed the arrival of the inaugural Air India Express flight from Kannur, India to Bahrain on April 1.

As the first direct route from Kannur (in Kerala state) to Bahrain, it opens up many new opportunities for tourism and trade between the two countries, a Bahrain News Agency report said.

A BAC delegation led by chief commercial officer Ayman Zainal received the inaugural flight alongside Indian Ambassador to Bahrain Alok Kumar Sinha, Air India Express country manager Saket Saran and other officials.

The airline, a subsidiary of Air India, will operate a twice-weekly service between Kannur International Airport and BIA. The route from BIA includes one stopover in Kuwait. The flight from Kannur is Air India Express' fourth direct route to BIA after Kochi, Kozhikode, and Mangalore.

Zainal said: "We hope that the introduction of this new route will further strengthen bilateral relations and serve the needs of the large expat community in the kingdom. We look forward to working with Air India Express to offer its customers a seamless and smooth passenger experience."
