Which Airlines Fly to Bahrain?
Gulf Air, Bahrain’s national carrier, flies direct to the island state from London Heathrow in just over 7 hours. British Airways and BMI also operate direct services from Heathrow. Other airlines can offer cheaper flight deals, but these may include a stopover on the way, which can make the journey much longer – so it’s important to weigh the pros and cons. KLM flies to Bahrain from Cardiff via Amsterdam, Qatar from Manchester via Doha, Emirates from Glasgow via Dubai, and Lufthansa from Birmingham via Frankfurt.
Mini Travel Guide to Bahrain
As a long-time Middle-Eastern business hub, discounted flights and hotels are readily available in Bahrain. That said, the Kingdom of Bahrain has a lot to offer tourists too. A shopper’s paradise, it has souks, markets and malls. Surrounded by water, the island nation also offers a range of aquatic pursuits including the famed tradition of pearl diving. It is also a country rich in history, having been a strategic location in the Gulf since ancient times. The Bahrain National Museum, for example, houses artefacts dating from the island’s first settlers some 9000 years ago. Bahrain’s unique boast: ancient burial sites cover five per cent of the landscape.
Tourists can also visit Qal’at al-Bahrain, a UNESCO Heritage Site. In recent years, the Bahrain F1 Grand Prix has also become a popular event with visitors.
