Gulf Traveller to fly to Birmingham

Gulf Traveller, the all-economy subsidiary of Gulf Air, is to start flights from Abu Dhabi to Birmingham early next year.

Gulf Traveller, the all-economy subsidiary of Gulf Air, is to start flights from Abu Dhabi to Birmingham early next year. The city will become Gulf Air’s seventh European destination and the first for Gulf Traveller.

At present, Gulf Traveller flies from Abu Dhabi to a number of destinations exclusively in the Indian subcontinent. However, from 1st April 2005, the carrier will also operate a Boeing 767-300ER four times a week to Birmingham, which will rise to a daily service from the end of June. Birmingham is thus a new market for GT, but James Hogan, president & chief executive of Gulf Air, is confident about the introduction of the all-economy airline into Britain.

“We’ve done our research. The needs of the UK market are evident for all to see. Our new service offers a bridge for those wishing to travel between the Midlands and the Middle East and Asia. The schedule has been planned to provide improved connections to major Indian Sub-Continent and Far East Asian destinations, and will therefore meet the travel requirements of holidaymakers as well as business travellers in all three centres,” says Hogan.
