Posted 28 March 2019 · Add Comment

Gulf Air has achieved its best February results in five years with the highest seat load factor for February since 2014.

 

With the growth of capacity and the increase of destinations, frequencies and fleet, the February 2019 results show Gulf Air’s strategic expansion with 75.7% seat load factor and a record number of 478,959 passengers. The preliminary results for the month of March, based on first twenty days, also show record numbers that beat all March results since 2012 in both seat load factors and number of passengers.

“We are extremely proud to report that the National carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain achieved the best results for the month of February comparing to the same month since 2014,” said the CEO of Gulf Air Krešimir Kučko “With greater capacity and number of seats, it was challenging to hit the best seat load factors however we managed to achieve this goal. Our passengers are proving to becoming more loyal and we see returning customers since the launch of our new fleet products the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and the Airbus 320neo”.
