Posted 26 April 2018 · Add Comment

Speaking at the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai Capt Waleed Alalawi, Gulf Air’s deputy chief executive, said the Bahraini airline was stepping up its activities with the kingdom’s department of tourism to encourage more tourists to visit the country. He said he was excited by new opportunities including a number of large weddings from Indian families as Bahrain becomes recognised as a perfect wedding venue.

“With the new airport coming, with our new fleet, with new destinations like Baku as well as Abha and Tabuk that are great holiday destinations for people from the Gulf, this is a great time for people to see what Gulf Air has to offer.”
Visitors to the Bahrain stand at the show had the opportunity to see the Gulf Air’s incoming Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner premium, business class seat and an example of the airline’s new livery
“We are only days away from officially taking delivery of Gulf Air’s first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner – a historic moment for Gulf Air and Bahrain and yet another important step in our strategic direction towards furthering Gulf Air’s fleet modernization process and supporting our network and overall passenger experience enhancement strategies,” Capt Waleed said.
Gulf Air’s new first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will be delivered on 27 April and will ultimately serve Gulf Air’s double daily London Heathrow service, offering increased capacity and enhanced, superior on-board products and services, from 15 June 2018. It will initially be used on short-haul intra-Gulf flights to enable familiarity and training ahead of the London inaugural.
Gulf Air’s incoming fleet of 39 new Boeing and Airbus aircraft will see by end-2018 the arrival of five Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and two Airbus A320neo aircraft.
