Gulf Air opens temporary museum for 70th anniversary

Gulf Air has opened a temporary museum at Bahrain City Centre as part of 70th anniversary celebrations.

Visitors to the exhibition will get to see exclusive and rare photographs and memorabilia from across the decades.

There will also be models of aircraft used over the past 70 years, as well as pilot and cabin crew uniforms.

A Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner Falcon Gold seat will also go on display to highlight the direction Gulf Air is taking in the future.

Zayed R. Alzayani, Gulf Air’s chairman, said, “Today we start our 70th anniversary celebrations with the opening of this museum.

“Gulf Air’s history is very rich and it has touched the lives of every Bahraini if not every GCC national.

“The exhibited items represent various decades of our history and showcase the evolution of the brand and the business.”

The news comes after Gulf Air announced last week that it would be launching direct flights to Nice from July 2020.

The airline will also offer flights to Mykonos, Munich, and Milan.
