Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of
Bahrain, has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
The airplane is extra special as it also
debuts the carrier's new livery.
"This delivery is a historic moment for Gulf Air
and Bahrain and yet another important step in our strategic
direction towards furthering Gulf Air's fleet modernization
process and supporting our network and overall passenger
experience enhancement strategies," said Krešimir Kučko, Chief
Executive Officer, Gulf Air. "The 787-9 Dreamliner orders will
ensure we maintain one of the youngest fleets in the region while
building upon our award-winning reliability, on time performance
and product and service standards."
Gulf Air is set to take delivery of four more
Dreamliners this year.
The airline plans to introduce the 787 on
its twice-daily service between Bahrain and London Heathrow before
deploying the jet on other routes.
