Bahrain's Gulf Air suspends several routes due to Corona Virus

Bahrain's state-owned carrier Gulf Air on Monday temporarily suspended dozens of routes as the coronavirus outbreak batters demand for global air travel.

The airline, which has been loss-making for years, said it would only continue flights to 13 destinations including to London, Frankfurt and Paris from Wednesday until the end of the month.

All other destinations would be suspended, it said, which Reuters calculated amounted to around 40 routes based on destinations listed on Gulf Air's website.
