In the last week or so, Gulf Air took delivery of their 10th Airbus A321neo aircraft via a delivery flight between Hamburg & Manama, Bahrain.
The carrier continues it’s fleet renewal and expansion program, allowing the carrier’s longevity and future success to take fold.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Bahrain: Gulf Air Takes Delivery of 10th Airbus A321neo in Manama…
Gulf Air flight GF9008 departed Hamburg at 1218 local time on November 18 and headed in the direction of Manama, Bahrain.
A9C-XC, the aircraft in question, landed into the airport at 1950 local time that evening.
It’s first scheduled flight was to Athens and back on November 23, following the appropriate checks on the ground at their base.
With this addition to the fleet, it means that Manama-based carrier Gulf Air now has 37 aircraft in the fleet, of which 35 are in service and two are currently parked, as per data from Planespotters.net.
The deliveries of the aircraft type have been gradual since 2020, with the carrier expected to take 17 Airbus A321neos in total.
12 A320neos in total are also enroute to the carrier, of which six have been delivered already at the time of writing (22/11/23).
These jets will be used to replace older A320ceo and A321ceo aircraft in the Bahrain-based carrier’s fleet, as well as to further enhance their route network going into the future.
All eyes will be on how all of the other deliveries perform, as well as what additional routes we may see once all deliveries have concluded.
