Gulf Air to deploy upgraded aircraft on Indian routes

Gulf Air is currently in the process replacing its aircraft operating on various Indian destinations with Airbus 320 Neos and Airbus 321 Neos, the chief executive of the airline has said.
“We are currently expanding our fleet with A321 Neos, A320 Neos and Boeing Dreamliners and we will be deploying these aircraft in our services to various Indian cities,” Kresimir Kucko, CEO of Gulf Air, told Arabian Business in an interview.
“We will also be occasionally deploying Boeing Dreamiliners on some of our routes in India. We cannot operate Dreamliners on the Indian routes on regular basis because of the capacity restrictions under bilateral rights with India,” Kucko added.
The Bahrain flagship carrier operates 82 weekly flights to 8 Indian cities. Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Cochin, Calicut, Trivandrum and Kolkota are the Indian airports it operate direct fights.
Gulf Air, which has A330s, A320s and 321 ERs in its fleet, has been introducing its new A320 Neos, A321 Neos and Boeing Dreamliners to various routes in its network.
“The fleet renewal is expected to be completed by 2023,” Kucko said.
