Gulf Air has launched its double daily Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner service connecting Bahrain International Airport and London, Heathrow.
Onboard the airline’s inaugural double daily Dreamliner service to London Heathrow were members of the airline’s executive management team.
The Gulf Air contingent was led by deputy chief executive officer Waleed Abdulhameed Al Alawi who was welcomed upon landing into Heathrow by Bahrain ambassador to the United Kingdom Fawaz bin Mohammed Al-Khalifa, embassy officials, and executive management from Heathrow Airport.
Al Alawi commented: “We are delighted to introduce our newest aircraft on Gulf Air’s London Heathrow route.
“With five Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft entering our fleet in 2018, an additional two arriving by end 2019 and three arriving by end 2020, Gulf Air’s Dreamliner orders will ensure we maintain one of the youngest fleets in the region while building upon our award-winning reliability, on time performance and product and service standards.
“I am looking forward to receiving passenger feedback on this exciting addition to our fleet and how our enhanced product will elevate the passenger experience for all.”
Gulf Air’s double daily nonstop flights connecting Bahrain and London Heathrow Terminal 4 provide excellent two-way connectivity.
Regional passengers can seamlessly connect via Bahrain to London while UK-based travellers can fly non-stop to Bahrain, with onward connections to key cities throughout the Middle East, Africa, India subcontinent and the Far East.
