Customers from the Middle East and Thailand now have more convenient options to travel to popular destinations in Thailand, China, Oman and Bahrain with a codeshare agreement signed between Gulf Air and Thai Airways.

The agreement paves way for Gulf Air to codeshare on Thai Airways` services in the following sectors: Bangkok-Muscat, Bangkok–Phuket-Bangkok, Bangkok-Chiang Mai-Bangkok. Thai Airways codeshares with Gulf Air on its Bangkok-Bahrain and Bangkok-Muscat sectors.

The sale of tickets for these sectors has already begun with Gulf Air and Thai Airways.

“We are delighted to become codeshare partners with Thai Airways, another airline of repute. It is part of Gulf Air’s growth strategy to strengthen its network and expand its operations in association with like-minded partners for mutually beneficial business propositions,” says Gulf Air Vice President Network Fareed Al Alawi.

“This is only the beginning; soon we will be offering more destinations in the Asia Pacific region for our discerning customers.”

The agreement signifies substantial levels of passenger traffic growth to and from Southeast Asia and the Middle East, says Thai Airways Executive Vice President Commercial Vasing Kittikul.

It is with great pleasure that Thai Airways enters into codeshare agreement with Gulf Air, which we are sure will be a successful venture for both the airlines, he adds.
