Bahrain International Airport open again for transit passengers says Gulf Air as the carrier imports fresh food from Europe

Transit through Bahrain International Airport is open again for international travellers, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain said on Saturday, though entry to the country is limited to Bahrainis and other residents during the coronavirus pandemic.

“In compliance with the new regulations issued by the Bahrain Civil Aviation Authority, we are welcoming back transit passengers through Bahrain International Airport. Arrival into Bahrain remains restricted to nationals and residents,” the airline said on social media. 

Manama-based Gulf Air and All Food Company, a Bahraini food supplier, imported approximately 4,000 kg worth of fresh produce from Europe using Gulf Air’s flagship Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on Wednesday. 

Gulf Air and All Food Co., in an initiative spearheaded by Team Bahrain, are working together to ensure that the global outbreak of the Coronavirus COVID-19 does not affect Bahrain’s food security.

Gulf Air invites Bahraini food suppliers to utilise its cargo operations, which are dedicated to ensuring a stable and safe food supply chain.
