Dubai: Bahraini air carrier Gulf Air has decided to suspend flights to Thiruvananthapuram from the end of this month as the airline revises its business amid debt problems.
The final service will depart from Bahrain on July 31, with the last inbound flight to the kingdom on August 1, an official said on condition of anonymity.
The official said a review had been conducted before a decision to scrap the route was taken.
"Gulf Air apologises to passengers affected by these cancellations and will be contacting those booked and ticketed on these services to provide them with a full refund or offer alternative travel arrangements," an airline statement said.
The airline is instead expanding more profitable routes across the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe.
Last month, it announced three new routes to Madinah, in Saudi Arabia, Alexandria in Egypt, and Aleppo in Syria.
