Afternoon departures from Bahrain International, January 2015

The typical weekend afternoon schedule out of Bahrain's only commercial airport is dominated by flights operated by the state carrier, Gulf Air, and flights to the Middle East. Bahrain's flag carrier departs for Karachi, Delhi, Muscat, Riyadh, Dubai (twice), Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, and Dammam. Mahan Air flies to Mashhad, Saudia to Jeddah, and Egyptair to Cairo. Emirati low-cost carriers flydubai and Rotana jet fly to their respective hubs as well.

The only flight on the top of the board that doesn't fall into either or both categories is Cathay Pacific's non-stop to Hong Kong.

  1. Sorry to nitpick =) but MS 8063 to Cairo is Gulf Air 79 operating to Cairo with an Egyptair codeshare.
    Egyptair's flight out of Bahrain leaves at 0400 or so.
    Also, GF 109 bound for Dammam is probably the shortest international flight in the world. Dammam is right across the sea. The flight is so short it's ridiculous. These days it's operated by A320-series aircraft, but at one point GF was sending in A340s.
