Bahrain halts flights to destinations flagged covid-19 risky

Bahrain has temporarily suspended flights to a number of destinations judged risky as part of the Gulf country’s efforts to stem the spread of covid-19 pandemic.
The Undersecretary for Civil Aviation Affairs at the Ministry of Telecommunications Mohammed Thamer Al-Kaabi, reports say, indicated that the temporary suspension had been recommended by the National Taskforce for Combating Covid-19 to protect citizens and residents’ health and safety.
Kaabi did not disclose the countries targeted.
Bahrain reopened its main airport in July after several month of hiatus. The national carrier, Gulf Air, as of September, resumed flying to London, Paris, Frankfurt, Manila, Athens, Cairo, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait, Peshawar, Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi.
