Gulf Air’s first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, which was furnished to Bahrain on Friday, will be working on regional routes, before it is conveyed on the London Heathrow route on June 15.
The wide-body aircraft, the first of Gulf Air’s incoming set of 39 new Boeing and Airbus aircraft, has 282 seats in a two-class configuration, with 256 Economy Class seats, 26 Falcon Gold Class seats – over 30 percent more than its last wide body offering.
Gulf Air will accept deployment of four more Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and two Airbus A320neo aircraft by the end of this year.
Additionally to the London route, Gulf will run the Dreamliner on the Casablanca, Morocco service.
Zayed R. Alzayani, Chairman of Gulf Air, explains the new aircraft as “a game-changer for the kingdom’s national carrier”.
Alzayani stated, “2018 will see Gulf Air open eight new routes to Abha, Alexandria, Baku, Bangalore, Calicut, Casablanca, Sharm El Shaikh and Tabuk.”
He also mentioned, “With such expansion, we are creating growth opportunities within the Kingdom of Bahrain’s financial and tourism sectors amongst others.”
As well as the excess space for passengers, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner provides about 20% less fuel and around 20% fewer emissions than the airplanes they substitute.
In 2018, Gulf Air’s network will operate on 49 cities in 26 countries.
