Gulf Air would 'consider positively' any interest from British Airways/Iberia

Gulf Air stated it would "consider positively" any interest from International Airlines Group, the new airline formed by the merger of British Airways and Iberia (The National, 12-Sep-2010). “Gulf Air has not been approached regarding this initiative. However, it is something the company would consider positively at the appropriate time. A central element of our long-term strategy is to join an alliance, and we are actively looking for a suitable partner to support Gulf Air’s business model and add value to the airline and vice versa.”
