Gulf Air performs lower Emission Flypast at Bahrain Grand Prix

Sakhir, Bahrain: Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, in cooperation with Formula 1, Boeing Rolls-Royce and Neste, performed a lower emission flypast at the 2021 Formula 1 season opener at the Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir.

Gulf Air unveiled its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner at the 2018 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix and today it used Sustainable Aviation Fuel provided by Neste to conduct this years’ iconic flypast. Moreover, the airline launched its new corporate slogan – A class of our own – representing Gulf Air’s legacy over the years, highlighting its individuality and ambition to be the best in class while adding its unique touch to its products and services.

Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft are scheduled on Gulf Air’s long-haul routes and are equipped with Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines which boast superior fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, consuming 20% less fuel and producing around 20% fewer emissions than the aircraft they replaced in Gulf Air’s previous fleet. Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ provides an immediate solution for reducing the carbon emissions of flying. In neat form and over the life cycle, its use results in up to 80%*lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil jet fuel*.
