8-Feb-2011 12:56 PM

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.”
