Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has taken delivery of its second Airbus A320neo.

Gulf Airís A320neo (new engine option) is powered by LEAP-1A engines from CFM International and features large wingtips known as Sharklets. Together they deliver 15% fuel burn reduction per seat. The A320neo is also more eco-friendly with 5,000 tonnes less CO2 emissions per year per aircraft and nearly 50% reduction in noise footprint compared to previous generation aircraft.
