Gulf Air's 70th celebrations kick off with museum launch

Posted 21 January 2020 · Add Comment

Shoppers at the Bahrain City Centre Shopping Mall are getting the chance to step back in time with the national carrier Gulf Air.

 
The airline is 70 years old this year and as part of its septuagenarian celebrations it has opened a pop-up museum at the Manama mall. The museum was opened by the airline’s chairman, Zayed R. Alzayani.
The museum celebrates 70 years of aviation in the Kingdom and showcases the airline’s rich history since its take-off in 1950. It features exclusive and rare photography and memorabilia items from different decades of the airline’s journey. Various aircraft models and Gulf Air’s uniforms from different eras will be on display to highlight the evolution of the brand over the years.
Other than celebrating history, the museum will also display the latest Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner Falcon Gold seat to highlight the future of Gulf Air.
Alzayani said: “Today we start our 70th anniversary celebrations with the opening of this museum. Gulf Air’s history is very rich and it has touched the lives of every Bahraini if not every GCC national. The exhibited items represent various decades of our history and showcase the evolution of the brand and the business. I invite everyone to come and visit the museum and go back in time on a journey from 1950 until today”.
