Bahrain Mirror: FlightGlobal website said that the Gulf Air appears to have cancelled the 10 Airbus A220-100 it ordered nearly a decade ago. Gulf Air had signed for the aircraft in mid-2011.
But doubts over the delivery have persisted and the airline's then-chief, Kresimir Kucko, told FlightGlobal in 2018 that the deal remained subject to certain agreements being met with Airbus.
Kucko was succeeded in October by acting chief Waleed Abdulhameed Al-Alawi, and the order for the A220s has since been removed from Airbus's backlog, the airframer's latest data shows.
Airbus A220, which was known as the Bombardier CSeries, is a family of narrow-body, twin-engine, medium-range jet airliners, designed by Bombardier Aerospace and marketed by Airbus company.
