Gulf Air Welcomes First Airbus A320neo Aircraft

Gulf Air, Bahrain’s national carrier, welcomed the airline’s first Airbus A320neo, which landed in Bahrain International Airport on August 18.

Following its delivery from the Airbus factory in Toulouse, France the aircraft will service a number of regional routes within the Gulf Air network.

With Krešimir Kučko, CEO, Gulf Air and representatives from Airbus on board, the A320neo received a water canon salute as it taxied to the terminal and was welcomed at Bahrain International Airport by a delegation of VIPs, dignitaries, government and aviation industry representatives and media members.

The aircraft is first of the 12 A320neo aircraft ordered during the 2016 Bahrain International Airshow. This delivery also reportedly makes Gulf Air the first national carrier to fly the A320neo in the Middle East and Africa region.
