President and Chief Executive of Gulf Air James Hogan and senior airline executives met with representatives from Boeing to discuss the airline's ten-year fleet expansion plans, and review options in the present market.
Gulf Air presently operates nine Boeing 767-300 aircraft, six of which will be used by the airline’s newly established all economy full service subdivision, Gulf Traveler, which commences operations out of Abu Dhabi on June 1.
Gulf Air was founded in 1950. Today, it is owned by the government of Bahrain, Oman and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and is the only truly pan Gulf carrier in the region. 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. — (menareport.com)
