1976 retro livery to celebrate Gulf Air's 70th Anniversary

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, proudly received on October 22 its seventh Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner at Bahrain International Airport in its special 70th anniversary livery which showcases the airline’s iconic vintage design from the last century with a revamped look. A number of VIP guests from the aviation industry and members of the media joined Gulf Air’s executive management at the welcoming event and viewed the new aircraft with its redesigned vintage version of the Golden Falcon Lockheed TriStar livery, representing Gulf Air’s iconic design from the 1970s. With the arrival of this special aircraft, Gulf Air has revealed its 70thanniversary logo which will be used in the airline’s marketing and promotional campaigns in 2020.


The new Dreamliner joined the Gulf Air fleet on its first commercial flight on October 23, 2019 from Bahrain International Airport to London Heathrow at 1015am local time. This will increase the total number of Dreamliners operated by the airline to seven aircraft which will be followed by the delivery of three more by end of 2020.

In 2018, Gulf Air launched its new brand identity at the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix and introduced its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner along with a series of new destinations. The airline also launched a new boutique strategy in early 2019. As Gulf Air moves forward with its strategy, the airline pays tribute to the past with a revamped livery signalling a new era.
