Gulf Air’s New A330 Product Roll Out
Gulf Air’s aggressive and proactive re-fleeting and product enhancement strategy saw it, in 2015, successfully roll out its newly retrofitted A330 aircraft.
Featuring a total of 214 seats in a two-class configuration of 30 Falcon Gold Class and 184 Economy seats, Gulf Air’s retrofitted A330 aircraft were designed specifically for the national carrier, integrating features based on passenger feedback.
The airline’s new Falcon Gold seat converts into a fully-flat bed measuring 1.90 meters in length guaranteeing a comfortable night’s sleep. With greater personal space between seats, passengers can sit back and relax in a 22-inch wide armchair that converts easily into your desired position with fully adjustable armrests, significant storage space and a much-lauded in-seat massage facility.
For optimum onboard entertainment, the Falcon Gold seats come with complete Audio-Video on Demand (AVOD) features, an individual 15-inch touch screen in every seat and high quality noise-cancelling headphones. A suite of movies, video and audio titles in several languages are available, in addition to games. A USB port is available in every seat allowing you to easily charge electronic devices during your flight.
Beyond the airline’s premium product, Gulf Air’s A330 Economy Class seats have also been upgraded to offer passengers the very latest in comfort and technology. Featuring a 4-inch recline, an 18-inch seat-width and an adjustable head and foot rest allowing greater passenger comfort, the seats are fitted with 9-inch seat back TV monitors that are ideal for enjoying the airline’s extensive in-flight entertainment options.
Incorporating several elements of passengers’ feedback, the revamped A330 product offers enhancements across both cabins and is used primarily on the airline’s London and Bangkok routes. Gulf Air flies nonstop twice daily between London Heathrow T4 and Bahrain and offers 6 daily flights between Bangkok and Bahrain. From Bahrain, Gulf Air offers easy access to one of the largest networks within the Middle East and provides seamless onward connections to a network stretching from India to Asia and Africa.
Today Gulf Air’s fleet is one of the youngest in the region with an average age of under 6 years while the airline’s Falcon Gold product is undergoing a complete overhaul both in the air and on the ground. Beyond superior comforts such as a SkyChef dining and SkyNanny service, you can also enjoy Gulf Air’s trademark Arabian hospitality and renowned bespoke services across the globe including, for Falcon Gold travellers, easy access to Gulf Air’s dedicated Falcon Gold lounges in London, Bahrain and Dubai.
