The new terminal at Bahrain International Airport is four times the size of the existing one from which the last flight also departed before halting all operations.
A Bahraini delegation led by Minister of Transport and Communications Kamal bin Mohammed landed at the capital’s Al Bateen Airport, making it the first flight to depart from the newly completed terminal in Manama.
