Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) has announced that it has completed the delivery of six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft to Gulf Air based on an aircraft lease agreement signed in November 2017.

The entire fleet of new-technology wide body aircraft was delivered between April 2018 and February 2019, said a statement from DAE.

CEO Firoz Tarapore said DAE was delighted to partner with Gulf Air and deliver these new-technology wide body aircraft to assist the airline with its fleet transition strategy.

Gulf Air CEO Kresimir Kucko said: "It is an honour to consider DAE as a strategic partner for Bahrain and Gulf Air as they played a crucial role in our strategic direction towards furthering our fleet modernisation process, enhancing passenger comfort and broadening our network as we look to strengthen our presence across the globe."

"We have already witnessed increased customer satisfaction with the new modern, fuel efficient Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners as they are deployed on popular routes such as London, Casablanca, Bangkok and Manila," remarked Kucko.

"The relationship with DAE is highly valued and we look forward to continue this relationship with future projects," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
