"This new service will offer passengers in the northern and southern central region of Italy access to the largest network of flights in the Middle East as well as the region's most efficient hub. With nearly 1110 flights per week within the region and beyond, our customers will be able to find a flight with an efficient connection time to their destination of choice."

"We are now two months from the launch and in the final stages of planning, and I am delighted to say our bookings are looking strong well into 2012" he concluded.

Aeroporti di Roma Executive Vice President Aviation, Mr. Elia Pistola added, "We are delighted that Gulf AirGulf AirLoading... has chosen to add Rome to its network and that Italy will become the first European country to have two major cities served by the airline.
