Gulf Air has received its seventh 787-9 Dreamliner with a re-designed livery.

 

The airline received the aircraft at Dulles International Airport in Washington DC.

In attendance at an event marking the arrival, which took place ahead of Gulf Air’s 70th anniversary, was the Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, and Chairman of Gulf Air’s Board of Directors, HE Zayed R. Alzayani, and the United States Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur L. Ross.

Attendees toured the aircraft, which displayed a redesigned vintage version of the Golden Falcon Lockheed TriStar livery, representing the company’s iconic design from the 1970s.

Alzayani said: “It gives me great honour to reveal this special livery which would definitely resonate nostalgically with our global audience. The revival of this livery is a homage to our resilient national carrier as it celebrates being one of the first established carriers in the Middle East and how it continues to connect the Kingdom of Bahrain to the world”.

The new Dreamliner will join the fleet by the end of October, increasing the total number of Dreamliners operated by the airline to seven aircraft following the delivery of three more by 2021.
