Posted 5 August 2019 · Add Comment

Gulf Air has achieved ‘outstanding’ half-year results for the first half of 2019 comparing to the same period in 2018 with a higher seat load factor as well as the number of carried passengers.

 

The results further compliment the launch of the airline’s boutique strategy, announced in January 2019, to focus on positioning itself in catering to a more premium niche market. The growth of capacity and the increase of destinations, frequencies and fleet has shown a strategic expansion in the half-year results with a 77.4% load in seat factor and a record number of 3.2 million passengers; in comparison to 74.3% seat load factor and 2.6 million carried passengers in first half of 2018.

“We are extremely proud to report that the National carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain achieved outstanding results for the first half of 2019 comparing to the same period in 2018,”  said CEO,  Krešimir Kučko “With greater capacity and number of seats, it was challenging to hit greater seat load factors however we managed to achieve this goal. Our passengers are proving to be more loyal and we see returning customers since the launch of our new fleet products the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and the Airbus 320neo.”
