Gulf Air to launch Larnaca-Athens flights

Gulf Air will on Friday start direct flights between Larnaca and Athens, it announced on Monday.

The flights will take place on Fridays and Sundays and be operated by the airline’s new Airbus A320neo.

Last month, the airline announced that all its flights would be operated by 100 per cent vaccinated crew, including pilots and flight attendants.

Gulf Air started its internal vaccination campaign for crew and front-line staff in December.

It is also offering complimentary Covid-19 travel insurance coverage to all ticket holders including health and quarantine expenses in the unexpected circumstances of contracting the virus during the journey.

All tickets booked, including redemption tickets, on Gulf Air flights for travel until November are automatically covered with Covid-19 insurance at no extra cost, the airline said.

“All passengers, according to the newly announced insurance policy and in the unfortunate event of being diagnosed with Covid-19 while traveling abroad, will be covered for repatriation assistance, medical and hospitals costs abroad as well as quarantine accommodation costs,” it added.
