Posted 23 May 2019 · Add Comment

Gulf Air has upgraded its aircraft that is scheduled to operate to Baku’s Heydar Aliyev International Airport on 29 May 2019 for fans of both Arsenal and Chelsea football clubs.

 

The airline will operate its flagship Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to allow more fans to travel and watch the big game between two English giants Arsenal and Chelsea in the final of UEFA Europa League.

With 26 seats in Falcon Gold and 256 in economy class seats, the state-of-the-art Dreamliner will be operated for the first time on the Bahrain-Baku route to cater to the increasing demand from football fans around the Gulf Air’s network to witness the highly anticipated football match of the season.

Gulf Air’s CEO Krešimir Kučko said: “The commercial team at Gulf Air is very responsive to events and happenings around our expanding network. When the demand forecast showed an increase we managed to upgrade the operating aircraft on 29th May to our new Dreamliner. The B787-9 has much more capacity than the regular scheduled aircraft to Baku and we are happy to offer this opportunity to all football fans of Arsenal and Chelsea.”
