Bahrain to Buy 50 Airbuses

Bahrain’s national carrier Gulf Air is planning to buy up to 50 Airbus aircraft, the country’s Information Minister Isa Abdulrahman Al-Hammadi has revealed. An AFP report quoting the minister said the massive new contract was discussed between Bahrain’s King Hamad and French President Francois Hollande during a meeting in Paris. The deal is likely to be finalized by the end of the year and an announcement will be made during the Bahrain International Air show taking place in January, Al-Hammadi was quoted as saying.  Gulf Air currently operates an all-Airbus fleet composed of 28 combination wide narrow and wide body aircraft that serve the airline’s network of 43 destinations.
