Sanjay Kumar, Chief Strategy and Revenue Officer, Indigo, said:

We are pleased to announce Bahrain as our 25th international and 99th overall destination in the 6E network. These new flights will enhance international connectivity and bolster trade, commerce and tourism between India and Bahrain which is known for its pearl diving and trading tradition. Bahrain will be the first post covid international addition to the 6E network. We will strive to stay true to our promise of affordable fares, on-time performance, courteous and hassle-free service across wide network, onboard our lean clean flying machines.

Bahrain is Indigo’s 25th international destination. With the launch of Bahrain flights, the airline will operate flights to all the 6 countries in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The airline will compete with Gulf Air on flights between Mumbai and Bahrain. Gulf Air operates 2-flights-a-day between the two cities.

Indigo says that the “direct connectivity to Bahrain will enhance tourist footprint in destinations like the Royal Camel Farm, the island of Pearls, the Twin Towers of Bahrain Trade Centre, one of the largest underwater theme parks, Dive Bahrain, Isa Town, the capital city of Manama, Zalaq, UNESCO world heritage site of Qal’at Al Bahrain, Sitra, Muharraq and the wildlife reserve at Al Areen”.
