Bahrain inks air transport pact with Pakistan

Civil aviation authorities in Bahrain and Pakistan have signed an air transport agreement that aims to accommodate the growing demand for direct routes by the 100,000-member Pakistani community in the kingdom, Gulf Daily News has reported. The agreement gave Gulf Air and Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) the green light to land multiple aircraft in both countries. Bahrain's Gulf Air currently flies 14 times a week to Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore and Peshawar, and has been recently given the right to increase the number of flights to 25 a week.
