Free city tour launched for Gulf Air transit passengers

Manama, July 5 (BNA): Transit passengers traveling through Bahrain International Airport (BIA) can experience the Kingdom’s rich culture and heritage first-hand while waiting for their connecting flights, Gulf Air, Bahrain Airport Company, and Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA) jointly announced.


From July 5, passengers with layovers ranging from five to 24 hours can avail of a free city tour, taking in Bahrain’s landmarks and historical hotspots.


The service is being offered jointly by Gulf Air, BAC, and BTEA, with transportation provided by Kanoo Travel.


Dr. Nasser Qaedi, CEO of the BTEA affirmed the full readiness of a dedicated team within the authority to activate this service in collaboration with all partners. Their goal is to ensure that beneficiaries receive an experience that surpasses their expectations, providing them with a distinguished tourism experience.


According to Dr. Qaedi, travelers passing through Bahrain Airport during their transit will have access to a comprehensive tourism program tailored to the duration of their layover.


This program aims to optimize their time and leave them with lasting positive impressions of Bahrain's tourism sector. It encompasses a wide range of offerings, including entertainment options, heritage sites, and major tourist attractions.


Additionally, a reliable and secure tourist transportation service will be provided during these tours to encourage them to visit Bahrain again and explore the pleasant experiences it offers, which represents an important and innovative addition to the development of tourism services in Bahrain.


"The Kingdom of Bahrain is not only an increasingly attractive destination for business and leisure travelers, but also a strategic gateway between East and West. Scores of visitors transit through BIA daily, with many not getting a chance to see the country beyond the confines of the airport. We hope the introduction of this new service will enhance the passenger experience, and give visitors a better understanding of all the remarkable attractions Bahrain has to offer", Jeffrey Goh Gulf Air Group Holding Chief Executive Officer added.


The three-hour tours are offered twice daily from 9 am-12 pm and 7-10 pm. Advanced booking is required.
