The Bahrain stand is located in Hall 2 stand ME1410 at ATM. Captain Waleed AbdulHameed Al Alawi, Gulf Air Deputy Chief Executive Officer said: "As the proud national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, it is fitting that we use this platform to showcase a key element of our new premium Gulf Air product offering. Going forward every traveller will be able to enjoy a state-of-the-art, modern, relaxing and memorable experience as Gulf Air's new fleet will be outfitted with superior seats, Inflight Entertainment and much more, elevating the premium passenger experience and enhancing the economy class experience. We are only days away from officially taking delivery of Gulf Air's first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner -- a historic moment for Gulf Air and Bahrain and yet another important step in our strategic direction towards furthering Gulf Air's fleet modernization process and supporting our network and overall passenger experience enhancement strategies. The ATM provides a unique opportunity for global travel trade industry members to learn more of industry offerings and trends. Gulf Air's attendance at the ATM is in line with our longstanding mission and continuous efforts to promote Bahrain to an international audience as a tourist and business destination and to promote how our national carrier is facilitating and enhancing the passenger experience to and from the Kingdom of Bahrain. With the support Gulf Air has been receiving to date from the Kingdom's leadership, our Board of Directors and Chairman Zayed Rashid Alzayani, we are looking forward to a more promising future for Gulf Air and to becoming an airline of choice, which is our strategic goal." Gulf Air's new and highly anticipated Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner fleet entry will be delivered on 27th April and will ultimately serve Gulf Air's double daily London Heathrow service, offering increased capacity and enhanced, superior on-board products and services, from 15th June 2018. Gulf Air's incoming fleet of 39 new Boeing and Airbus aircraft will see by end-2018 the arrival of five Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and two Airbus A320neo aircraft. The new incoming aircraft will facilitate the national carrier expansion plans, while maintaining one of the youngest fleets in the region, building upon its award-winning reliability, on time performance and product and service standards.
