Gulfstream has delivered the first of three GVs to Kuwait Airways. The aircraft will be used to transport Kuwait Government officials worldwide and will provide special airlift capabilities and ultra-long range medical evacuation. Gulfstream's fleet in the Middle East and North African regions totals 74 aircraft - roughly four times the manufacturer's nearest competitor, says the company. Savannah, Georgia-based Gulfstream is in negotiations to establish an authorised service centre in the Middle East, says vice-chairman Bryan Moss.
