Bahrain's national airline Gulf Air today (October 22) received its seventh Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner at Bahrain International Airport in style.
Decked in its special 70th anniversary livery, the aircraft had an iconic vintage design from the last century with a revamped look.
A number of VIP guests from the aviation industry and senior government officials joined Gulf Air’s executive management to welcome the new aircraft.
The Dreamliner had a redesigned vintage version of the Golden Falcon Lockheed TriStar livery, representing Gulf Air’s iconic design from the 1970s.
With the arrival of this special aircraft, Gulf Air has revealed its 70th anniversary logo which will be used in the airline’s marketing and promotional campaigns in 2020, said the statement from Gulf Air.
The new Dreamliner will take off on its first commercial flight tomorrow (October 23) to London Heathrow at 10.15am from Bahrain International Airport.
With this new arrival, Gulf Air's Dreamliners fleet strength currently stands at seven. This will be followed by delivery of three more planes by the end of 2020.
In 2018, Gulf Air had launched its new brand identity at the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix and introduced its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner along with a series of new destinations, said the national carrier in its statement.
The airline also launched a new boutique strategy in early 2019. As Gulf Air moves forward with its strategy, the airline pays tribute to the past with a revamped livery signalling a new era, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
