B/E Aerospace to Supply Gulf Air’s B787-9 Business Class Seats

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has selected B/E Aerospace to supply the business class seating for its 10 new Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

 The first B787-9 deliveries are scheduled for 2018.

Werner Lieberherr, CEO and President of B/E Aerospace, said, “We are pleased to be here today with Gulf Air in Farnborough and to have been awarded the business class seating program for Gulf Air’s Boeing 787 aircraft. Our seats will provide the Gulf Air passenger with enhanced comfort and functionality within the business class cabin. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Gulf Air."

The B/E Aerospace business class seat will be jointly developed with Gulf Air to provide Gulf Air’s passengers with enhanced living space, functionality and comfort.

Gulf Air's other Farnborough International Airshow 2016 announcements reflect the airline's ongoing investment in its product and service offering. They include the selection of Thales AVANT In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system for the airline's future fleet and awarding Rolls-Royce a contract for Trent 1000 engines to power 10 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and 6 further Boeing 787-9 options.

 Mr. Maher Salman Al Musallam, Gulf Air Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are enhancing the entire spectrum of Gulf Air's onboard product offering and, with this key partnership we are confident that the passenger experience will be elevated - meeting the needs and requirements of travellers moving across the Gulf Air network.”
