Bahrain Air won’t delay launch of Egypt services

Bahrain Air announced it has no plans to postpone the launch of services to Egypt, despite political turmoil disrupting the country and deterring tourists (TradeArabia News Service, 06-Feb-2011). The airline plans to launch twice-weekly Manama-Sharm el Sheikh via Alexandria/Borg el Arab services from 03-Mar-2011 – see Route Changes Table for more information. Bahrain Air will be the only carrier operating on the sector. An airline spokeman stated “there is a tremendous potential and huge opportunity for growth … we have to capitalise on that.”
