Posted 2 May 2017 · Add Comment

Gulf Air is gearing up for the arrival of the airline's first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft which will be delivered to Gulf Air in April 2018 and will operate the airline's long haul routes, gradually replacing its Airbus A330s.

 A total of 5 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft will have entered Gulf Air’s fleet by end-2018 with an additional 2 aircraft arriving by end-2019 and 3 arriving by end-2020.

“We are 12 months away from welcoming the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to the Gulf Air fleet – a historic moment in our trajectory and yet another important step in our strategic direction towards furthering Gulf Air’s fleet modernisation process and supporting our network and overall passenger experience enhancement strategies. As we look to strengthen our presence across the globe, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners will also serve to enhance Gulf Air’s operational efficiency while offering enhanced passenger comfort. I am confident our guests will be delighted with the experience of flying with our newest aircraft,” said Maher Salman Al Musallam, Gulf Air chief executive officer.
