Gulf Air operates one of the world’s youngest fleets, the result of a multi-billion dollar aircraft acquisition programme. The average age of aircraft is less than three years, a graphic illustration of Gulf Air’s commitment to modern technology and passenger comfort. The airline operates four passenger aircraft types; Airbus A340-300s for long and ultra-long haul flights; Boeing 767-300ERs for long and medium-haul, Airbus A330-200s for medium and long haul flights and Airbus A320-200s for short to medium haul sectors.

Airbus A340-300

Gulf Air was the first airline in the Middle East and Asia to operate the Airbus A340-300. Among other routes, this ultra-long haul, four-engine aircraft operated the longest non-stop A340 scheduled commercial service in terms of flight time. Gulf Air believes its adaptations to an already passenger-friendly aircraft make its A340s among the most comfortable commercial airliners in operation.
