Gulf Air to fly to North America in the next 5 years

Gulf Air is looking at the possibility of flying to a number of destinations in North America in 2023 as part of a larger plan to extend their network to more countries around the world. Recently, Gulf Air CEO Waleed Abdul Hamid Al Alawi, Deputy CEO Krishmir Kuchko and the US Ambassador to Bahrain met to discuss the expansion to North America.

Gulf Air already codeshares flights with American Airlines to connect Europe with North American cities, and North American cities with Bahrain, but the flights in 2023 would see Gulf Air operate the flights on their own. The cities that Gulf Air would fly to are yet to be undecided, but they're likely to be cities with big international airports that can act as potential gateways to other destinations in the area.
