Nice Cote d'Azur connects to Bahrain with Gulf Air and consolidates its responsible development policy

The airline of the kingdom of Bahrain opens its second line to France by connecting its capital to Nice Côte d'Azur. This development of traffic from the Côte d'Azur airport will be thanks to the latest generation Airbus A321neo, among the least emissive on the market.

From July 2 to August 30 , Gulf Air will connect the capital of Bahrain to Nice Côte d'Azur every Thursday and Sunday . It will be his second destination in France, after Paris. The flight will make a one-hour stopover in Milan. After Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, it is a new country in the Gulf which opens a regular line to the Côte d'Azur, testimony to the attractiveness of the territory for a clientele of high-end leisure travelers.

Gulf Air will charter Airbus A321neo , modern aircraft with environmental performance among the best on the market, with up to 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to aircraft of the same category. They will offer 166 places, 150 in Economy class and 16 in Business class.

"This new route symbolizes our strategy which must reconcile the development of our network, to the benefit of the dynamism of our territory, and the preservation of the environment, by the use of the most modern and least emissive planes" , welcomes Dominique Thillaud, Chairman of the Airports of the Côte d'Azur.
