Gulf Air welcomes its new 70th anniversary edition aircraft to Bahrain

Gulf Air has taken delivery of a brand new aircraft – dressed up in the airline’s 70th anniversary ‘Golden Falcon’ colours.

The Airbus A321neo thus showcases a “vintage design from the last century with a revamped look”. The aircraft will operate long-haul European routes as well as a selection of GCC destinations. The aircraft is the second of the 17 A321neo aircraft order, which includes eight that are equipped with flat-bed seats.

Gulf Air was the first airline in the Middle East to introduce fully flat-beds on this aircraft type. This particular aircraft arrived at the new terminal of Bahrain International Airport at approximately 06:40 local time on Friday (February 5).

The aircraft boasts the essence of the overall boutique experience with the opportunity to provide more personalized service, cosier cabin and faster process of boarding and disembarking.

The new aircraft will also be equipped with wireless internet connection (WiFi) as the airline continues to offer the best in class service to passengers flying on its young fleet.
