Gulf Air has recently extended its cooperation to Saudi Arabian Airlines by operating two weekly non-stop code-shared flights on the Dammam-Kathmandu route, it was informed today.

This, the Saudi Arabian Airlines said, has been done in response to the increasing demand and to provide enhanced customer service as part of its new network strategy. The flights will be operative in the Airbus A340-300 aircraft. In addition to the code-share arrangement, Saudi Arabian Airlines has added its code on the Gulf Air-operated two flights on Riyadh-Bahrain-Bangkok route as well as in the two flights on Riyadh-Bahrain-Kathmandu route.
