Gulf Air, Bahrain’s national carrier, has been independently ranked by UK aviation analysts OAG as 2017’s third most punctual amongst Middle East and African airlines, with an average on-time performance (OTP) of 80.22 per cent.
The airline’s CEO Krešimir Kučko says: “Punctuality is a critical element for travellers and we are delighted to be recognised yet again as a leading global player in OTP. Gulf Air is committed to delivering on its promise to get passengers to their destinations in a timely manner.
We are gearing up to welcome our incoming fleet of 39 new Boeing and Airbus aircraft, of which a total of five Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and two Airbus A320neos will have entered Gulf Air’s fleet by the end of 2018. With this development, passengers can soon enjoy not only Gulf Air’s punctuality and trademark Arabian hospitality, but also remarkable product and service enhancements alongside network growth.”
