GULF AIR'S DECISION to lease four new Boeing 777s has given the Bahrain-based airline an instant boost in terms of its re-fleeting plans and product enhancement strategy.
The aircraft, which come with a high specification - privates suites in First, fully lie-flat beds in Business and more legroom in Economy - are being leased from India's Jet Airways. Three have already been delivered and the fourth is due this month (May). London and Kuala Lumpur are among the routes on which the aircraft have already been deployed, as well as some within the Gulf region.
"The addition of the Boeing 777s to our fleet is a major coup for us," says Gulf Air CEO Björn Näf, speaking at a presentation in Bahrain to introduce the new aircraft. "The product they offer is one of, if not, the best in the world. I am confident that this will once again make Gulf Air the airline of choice and leave our passengers with an easy decision when deciding which airline to fly."
The airline currently has 59 aircraft on order, including 15 Airbus A320s, 20 A330s and 24 Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
The newly delivered Triple 7s have eight individual First Class suites and 30 Business Class seats in a herringbone configuration, with large screen monitors and on-demand in- flight entertainment. The service features Gulf's award winning Sky Chefs and Sky Nannies.
