Gulf Air, Egyptair to expand cooperation

the national carrier of Bahrain Gulf Air and the national carrier of Egypt EGYPTAIR signed a letter of intent for studying cooperation expansion in airfreight, maintenance, training and frequent flyer programs.


The cooperation aims to enhance the two national carriers’ networks and services.


“As the region’s leading boutique carrier with a global footprint, Gulf Air is proud to further enhance commercial opportunities with our partner, EGYPTAIR,” Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Executive Officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi said.

"Signing this letter of intent demonstrates our continued focus to provide our passengers with new destinations, grow our cargo capabilities and importantly enhance customer experience. Likewise, this agreement represents the strong existing commercial cooperation that Gulf Air enjoys with EGYPTAIR, that we will look to build on."


“We are glad of this cooperation, as EGYPTAIR and Gulf Air are two of the deep-rooted national airlines in the region backed with great experiences, technical and professional capabilities that qualify them to cater for the needs of our travellers,” Egyptair Holding Chairman & CEO Captain Amr Abul El Enein.

"This cooperation comes at a time of remarkable developments in the aviation industry that requires the partners to cope with the new and developing requirements of the industry and to enhance the relations for better services to the customers."


In December 2020, Gulf Air and EGYPTAIR announced the expansion of their codeshare partnership, bringing more travel opportunities for their customers.
