's new leisure subsidiary should start operating in June. To start with, 6 out of the 9 GF
's B767-300ERs, reconfigured into a single-class economy layout, will be transferred to the new airline, called "Gulf Traveller"
. Eventually, the 3 remaining ones will join the fleet.
Gulf Traveller's initial services will be to key points in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, the Middle East and South-East Asia. The leisure airline's long-term route development could see services to northern England and Africa. Abu Dhabi (UAE) will be used as a hub by the airline.
Gulf Traveller's livery is using the same 3 colours of its parent airline i.e. white, blue and gold in a much lighter and nicer way, IMO. The golden falcon will be still showing on the tail.
The sky has no limit...
