  • The new route, run by Gulf Air, will operate each Thursday and Saturday

Last weekend's inaugural flight from Bahrain to Malaga was recieved with a water salute on landing at Malaga Airport.

The new route, run by Gulf Air, will operate each Thursday and Saturday.

To celebrate the company's debut fight, which is also its first landing in Spain, passengers and crew members who flew on the plane were treated to cakes and biscuits.

This route improves the Costa del Sol's connections with the Middle East, where it already has links to Istanbul, Tel Aviv, Doha, Kuwait and Riyadh.
