Gulf Air recently unveiled its temporary museum at the Bahrain City Centre shopping mall, as part of a series of 70th anniversary celebrations.

The Gulf Air 70th anniversary museum celebrates seven decades of aviation in the Kingdom of Bahrain since its take-off in 1950 and showcases the airline’s rich history. It features exclusive and rare photography and memorabilia items from different decades of the airline’s journey. In addition, various aircraft models and Gulf Air’s uniforms from different eras will be on display to highlight the evolution of the brand over the years.

The museum will also display the latest Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner Falcon Gold seat to highlight the future of Gulf Air. It will be open for the public for a limited period and will exclusively attract the local and regional footfall of the Bahrain City Centre shopping mall.

“Gulf Air’s history is very rich, and it has touched the lives of every Bahraini, if not every GCC national,” chairman of the board of directors, Gulf Air, Zayed R. Alzayani declared. “The exhibited items represent various decades of our history and showcase the evolution of the brand and the business. I invite everyone to come and visit the museum and go back in time on a journey from 1950 until today.”

Gulf Air will continue its fleet modernisation programme in 2020 and will receive the final three Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners of the 10 aircraft it has ordered. The airline will also take delivery of the brand-new Airbus 321neo aircraft, which will be predominantly deployed on European long-haul routes.
