Bahrain Air to add Indian and Sri Lankan routes

1 Apr 2009

Bahrain Air is planning to add a new Indian route and to open its first Sri Lankan service with a Bahrain-Colombo service, signalling further competition in the Middle East to serve the Indian subcontinent.

The airline, which positions itself as a premium low-cost carrier, currently serves 16 destinations, the bulk being in the Middle East and North Africa. A Bahrain-Abu Dhabi service opened last week, with a nine-times-a-week frequency.

The airline already flies to Kochi and Kozhikodze in southern India and is looking at adding a new route to Amhedabad in northern India, according to a Bahrain Air spokesman.

Three more destinations are to be added by the end of the year - to Sanaa in Yemen, to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia and to Colombo in Sri Lanka.

The airline uses planes from the Airbus A320 family, in a two-class configuration: economy and premium.
