Saudi Arabian Airlines’ vice president marketing planning, Dr Omar Abdullah Jefri, said: “This will add more commercial and marketing choices for the two Arab carriers. It will also provide more travel solutions for our passengers. In addition, it will reduce costs.” The two carriers are working closely together to extend the integration levels for their networks. They will also add more services through their code-share agreement. Gulf Air vice-president, network, Fareed Al Alawi, said: “We are proud of this cooperation and the strong ties that Gulf Air has with Saudi Arabian Airlines. “The coordination between us is exemplary on local and global levels. This is evident from our code-share flights which exceed 45 services a week.” The newly added non-stop flights will complement the existing direct flights between Damman and Kathmandu, via Muscat and Bahrain/Al Medina Al Munawara, which are also expected to increase in the near future.
