The check was carried out fully in Bahrain by Gulf Air’s team of engineers and technicians comprising of more than 90% Bahraini qualified staff. This marks the second important milestone for the airline after the first C-Check insourcing of the Airbus A320neo in 2020.

 

A ceremonial event, that obeyed the social distancing rules amidst the current situation, was headed by Gulf Air’s acting chief executive officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi.

 

He said: “The successful completion of this milestone demonstrates our strong in-house technical expertise and capabilities – for which I congratulate the entire Gulf Air’s Technical Division. I look forward to marking additional accomplishments over the coming months utilising our robust aircraft maintenance system that delivers the highest quality and standards of aircraft maintenance while providing an opportunity for necessary cost savings for our national carrier. I also thank the Bahrain Civil Aviation Affairs for granting the necessary approval for carrying out this check.”
