Gulf Air Showcases B787 Dreamliner and Casablanca to Bahrain Media

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, recently arranged a press trip for Bahraini press to experience its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft on a flight to one of its newest destinations, Casablanca, Morocco.

The journalists had the opportunity to experience the comfort of flying Gulf Air’s new Dreamliner and the facilities of its Falcon Gold lounge in Bahrain International Airport prior to the flight. In Casablanca, a city that has been added to the Gulf Air’s network since summer 2018, the guests visited notable touristic sights and landmarks and enjoyed staying in a key 5-star hotel, Sheraton Casablanca Hotel.

Gulf Air operates five weekly direct flights between Bahrain and Casablanca on its B787-9 Dreamliner. The aircraft offers 282 seats in a two-class configuration, with 26 Falcon Gold Class seats and 256 Economy Class seats – a 32% increase in capacity on the airline’s previous wide body offering. The industry-leading technology of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner boasts superior fuel efficiency, environmentally friendly operations and range flexibility that will facilitate Gulf Air’s planned network expansion and fleet optimisation at a lower operating cost. The state of the art aircraft includes many improvements such as the largest windows of any jet, air that is cleaner and more humid for greater comfort, large overhead bins with room for everyone’s bag, soothing LED lighting and technology that senses and counters turbulence for a smoother ride.
