KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM), marked 45 years of scheduled passenger services to the Kingdom of Bahrain, with a private gala dinner at Westin Hotel, Manama, held in the presence of ambassador of France and honorary consul of Kingdom of the Netherlands on November 4, 2018. The event was attended by distinguished guests, loyal Flying Blue and corporate clients, aviation and travel industry representatives.
KLM services to Bahrain began in November 1973 and have linked Bahrain to the rest of the world continuously ever since. KLM operates six weekly flights from Bahrain International Airport connecting passengers to Amsterdam and into the airline’s extensive global network. The airline serves Bahrain with commercial, station and cargo services and has a team of around seven staff based in Manama.
Commenting on the Bahrain milestone, Yeshwant Pawar, general manager Gulf, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Pakistan, Air France KLM, said: “KLM is very proud to be celebrating this long association with the Kingdom of Bahrain – one of our most important destinations in the Arabian Gulf - extending to 45 years of continuous service. We have flown millions of passengers to and from Bahrain, helping to connect this wonderful country with the rest of the world. On behalf of KLM, I wish to express our deepest gratitude to the Government and authorities in Bahrain, our loyal Flying Blue clients, corporate and travel agents, who have made this achievement possible and the relationship such an enduring success.”
