GULF Air’s one-day package to watch the final race of the 2006 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix on March 12 has become very popular and is selling out fast, said a spokesman.
Each package includes return economy class air tickets, meet & greet service at Bahrain International Airport, transfers from the airport to the Bahrain International Circuit and back, entrance tickets to the Grand Prix on March 12 and a souvenir bag. The packages are available around the GCC and can be tailormade for customers in other Middle Eastern countries. Says Gulf Air’s marketing manager for the Gulf and the Middle East, Rabab Khalil, “We understand the growing trend of motor sport in the region and are taking this opportunity to build major excitement among Formula One fans in the region.”
