During the first day of the Bahrain International Airshow 2016, we have announced our restructured order of 45 aircraft with Boeing and Airbus in deals worth a combined total of USD7.6 billion. The orders consist of 16 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, 17 Airbus A321neo and 12 Airbus A320neo aircraft.
The deliveries of these aircraft will commence from Q2 2018. The orders follow extensive negotiations with both aircraft manufactureres to revise Gulf Air’s previous orders with Boeing and Airbus. The restructured orders will simplify Gulf Air’s future wide-body fleet to Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and ensure its future narrow-body fleet will largely focus on A320 neo Family aircraft.
