Manama : Gulf Air, the national airline of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has taken delivery of its seventh Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
The aircraft has been painted in a redesigned vintage version of the Golden Falcon Lockheed TriStar livery from the 1970s.
The new Dreamliner will join the fleet by the end of October.
Zayed R. Alzayani, Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, Bahrain and Chairman of Gulf Air's Board of Directors, said, "It gives me great honour to reveal this special livery which would definitely resonate nostalgically with our global audience. The revival of this livery is a homage to our resilient national carrier as it celebrates being one of the first established carriers in the Middle East and how it continues to connect the Kingdom of Bahrain to the world."
The airline is scheduled to take delivery of three more Boeing 787s by 2021.
Gulf Air will celebrate its 70th anniversary in 2020 with a series of events and promotions.
