Bahrainís Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, and Chairman of Gulf Airís Board of Directors, HE Zayed R. Alzayani, said, ďIt 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.Ē
