Gulf Air adds Embraer

GULF AIR has introduced the Embraer 170 on its regional services with a flight from Bahrain to Larnaca in Cyprus.  The airline is leasing a pair of the Embraer e series regional jets as part of an evaluation for future requirements.  The two Embraers will be used on services from the Bahrain hub to Athens, Baghdad, Erbil, Istanbul and Muscat as well as Larnaca.  The aircraft is two-class with the Falcon Gold Business Class cabin offering just seven seats with a 36” pitch.  Economy is 31” but every seat has a state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment (IFE) system in every seat.  With over 3,000 video titles and audio channels to choose from at their finger-touch, customers are spoilt for choice from a wide range of movies, music, news and documentaries in Arabic, English and several other languages. The Embraer introduction is being supported by the British airline Flybe, who also operate the e series jets. www.gulfair.com
