Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has signed an agreement with Thales to equip the airline’s new, incoming 12 Airbus A320Neo and 17 A321Neo aircraft with a cockpit package of Thales avionics solutions including the TopFlight and Flight Management System (FMS).

Gulf Air Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Captain Waleed Abdulhameed Al Alawi said: “We are selecting the best systems to support our incoming fleet – ensuring the best capabilities for our operations and, ultimately, the best possible passenger experience.”

Eric Huber, Thales VP and general manager of avionics services worldwide said: “Our avionics products benefits have been repeatedly acknowledged as providing an operational edge for pilots through better trajectory management, as numerous selections in 2017 confirm it. This new selection by Gulf Air reinforces our leadership position in the Middle-East aviation market, underlining the performance and competitiveness of our products and the excellence of the support”.
