First Gulf Air flight to Geneva takes off
The first flight of Gulf Air’s once-a-week, non-stop service to Geneva went off June 19, 2003. The service out of Abu Dhabi is part of Gulf Air’s summer schedule. It uses the Boeing 737-700 Business Jet that has been configured to offer a three-class service for VIPs and corporate travelers.
The service, which is geared predominantly to First and Business Class passengers, departs Abu Dhabi once a week on Thursdays at 11am, returning from Geneva on Fridays. One of the major attractions is the presence of two of Gulf Air’s chefs on board every flight.
Gulf Air was founded in 1950. Today, it is owned by the Kingdom of Bahrain, Oman and the UAE. The airline’s network stretches from Europe to Asia and covers 43 cities in 32 countries. The fleet is one of the most modern in the Middle East and comprises 30 aircraft. The airline is in the first year of a three-year strategic recovery program. — (menareport.com)
