Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, celebrated the opening of its temporary museum at the Bahrain City Centre shopping mall which marks the start of a series of 70th anniversary celebrations in 2020.
The museum celebrates 70 years of aviation in Bahrain and showcases the airline’s rich history since its take-off in 1950. It features exclusive and rare photography and memorabilia items from different decades of the airline’s journey. Moreover, various aircraft models and its uniforms from different eras will be on display to highlight the evolution of the brand over the years. Other than celebrating history, the museum will also display the latest Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner Falcon Gold seat to highlight the future of the airline.
The museum will be open for the public for a limited period of time and will exclusively attract the local and regional footfall of the mall.
The official opening was under the patronage of Zayed R. Alzayani, chairman of board of directors in Gulf Air, who cut the ribbon and launched the project in presence of the airline’s board members and executive management. He said: “Our carrier’s history is very rich and it has touched the lives of every Bahraini if not every GCC national. The exhibited items represent various decades of our history and showcase the evolution of the brand and the business.”
