Gulf Air’s First Dreamliner Takes to the Skies

Gulf Air’s first Boeing B787-9 Dreamliner conducted a fly pass before this year’s Bahrain Grand Prix began, showcasing not only the airline’s newest, state-of-the-art aircraft but also the new Gulf Air livery.

According to the airline, the new fleet entry is expected to be delivered on April 27 and will ultimately serve Gulf Air’s double daily London Heathrow service to the UK, offering increased capacity and enhanced onboard products and services, from June 15.

A total of five Boeing B787-9 Dreamliner aircraft are expected to have entered Gulf Air’s fleet by the end of the year, with an additional two aircraft anticipated to arrive by the end of 2019, and a further three arriving by the end of 2020.

Krešimir Kučko, CEO, Gulf Air, commented, “Public reaction to witnessing the return of the Gulf Air fly pass at the Bahrain Grand Prix and to getting an early glimpse of one of our newest incoming aircraft has been overwhelmingly positive.”

Gulf Air’s Boeing B787-9 Dreamliners have been designed to provide 282 seats in a two-class configuration, with 26 Falcon Gold class seats and 256 economy class seats.
