Gulf Air has signed contracts totaling approximately US$20 million appointing Avianor, Zodiac Aerospace and BEAerospace as partners for retrofit of its A330 fleet.
The airline’s planned A330 retrofit is scheduled to be completed in the last quarter of 2014, as part of the on-going proactive re-fleeting and product enhancement strategy.

A complete transformation of the A330 seat configuration will see the introduction of fully-flat bed seats in the Falcon Gold Class, revamped seats in Economy Class and introduction of a new in-flight-entertainment (IFE) system.
Gulf Air’s acting chief executive officer Maher Salman Al Musallam said: “For the first time, we have integrated passenger comments and feedback during the development stage of the seats’ design. Customers travelling on these aircraft, in both classes, will now have a more enjoyable experience.”
Avianor has been appointed to act as ‘turn-key provider’ managing the program with responsibility for the Engineering, Certification and Installation of this extensive upgrade.
