August 24, 2021

Gulf Air, Bahrain's national carrier, has flown a first-of-its-kind flight from Isa Air Base to Dulles International Airport as part of efforts to evacuate individuals from Afghanistan to the United States.

Gulf Air's participation makes it the first commercial airline in the world to arrive in the US as part of the evacuation efforts of individuals from Afghanistan, a Bahrain News Agency report said.

It represents an affirmation of Bahrain's efforts to protect lives. This initiative comes as part of the Kingdom's well-established endeavours to support humanitarian efforts, said the report.
