Cabin refurbishments have been carried out on four of Gulf Air's six Airbus A330s.

The programme, revealed by the state-owned Bahraini carrier a year ago, comprised installation of fully flat premium seats, updated economy-class accommodation and a new in-flight entertainment system.

Gulf Air's acting chief executive Maher Salman Al Musallam told Flightglobal in January 2014 that the cabin revamp might be extended to the other two A330s. Now, though, the carrier says the programme is complete after modification of the initial four.

The airline's long-haul fleet comprises six Rolls-Royce Trent 700-powered A330-200s. However, the carrier has orders for six higher-weight A330-300s and 16 Boeing 787s, Flightglobal's Ascend Fleets database shows.

The revamped aircraft will be used mainly for flights to Bangkok and London, says Gulf Air – which also deploys A330s on services to Dubai, Islamabad, Jeddah, Karachi, Lahore, Manila, Peshawar and Riyadh, Flightglobal's Innovata schedules indicate.
