Rotana Jet today announced twice weekly flights between Abu Dhabi Al Bateen Airport and Kingdom of Bahrain.
Kingdom of Bahrain marked the second International destination of Rotana Jet after Salalah in Sultanate of Oman. Following on successfully connecting flights between Al Bateen and Salalah the addition of Bahrain demonstrates the airline’s commitment to expand to destinations that are largely underserved and have great market potential. The flights are in agreement with Tour Operators promoting the destination.
“Today marks a very special occasion as we celebrate our launch into a city and country that show enormous potential and growth. Bahrain is another example of Rotana Jet’s commitment to provide passengers with choice and great value with easy access. 2013 will continue to be one of Rotana Jet’s biggest years of expansion addressing the underserved markets that our strategy has focused on. As we continue to grow and receive more aircraft, we will look at other opportunities to expand our network and further strengthen our brand presence. This includes the GCC region initially,” said Rajendran Vellapalath, Rotana Jet’s Commercial and Planning Director.
