We are only days away from officially taking delivery of Gulf Air’s first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner – a historic moment for Gulf Air and Bahrain and yet another important step in our strategic direction towards furthering Gulf Air’s fleet modernization process and supporting our network and overall passenger experience enhancement strategies. The ATM provides a unique opportunity for global travel trade industry members to learn more about industry offerings and trends. Gulf Air’s attendance at the ATM is in line with our longstanding mission and continuous efforts to promote Bahrain to an international audience as a tourist and business destination and to promote how our national carrier is facilitating and enhancing the passenger experience to and from the Kingdom of Bahrain. With the support Gulf Air has been receiving to date from the kingdom’s leadership, our Board of Directors and chairman Zayed R. Alzayani, we are looking forward to a more promising future for Gulf Air and to becoming an airline of choice, which is our strategic goal.”
