Manama, Mar. 6 (BNA): Bahrain’s national carrier Gulf Air and Civil Aviation Affairs represented by Bahrain International Airshow Group signed an agreement to sponsor the Bahrain International Air Show in its two editions for 2022 and 2024.

 

The signing was part of the efforts made by the Higher Organizing Committee of the Bahrain Exhibition International Aviation, chaired by Personal Representative of His Majesty the King and Chairman of the Organizing Committee HH Shaikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa.

 

It was also in response to HH’s directives on the importance of coordination, cooperation and community partnership with leading national companies to contribute to supporting the national economy and the comprehensive development in Bahrain.

 

 

Acting Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Air Captain Waleed AlAlawi, Director of the Bahrain International Airshow Office Yousif Mahmoud, and members of executive management from both entities attended the ceremony.

 

“Gulf Air is proud to participate as the official carrier of this important event, which we have been and still are an integral part of, since its inception in 2010," Al Alawi said. 

"The Kingdom is growing on the international scene, and Gulf Air is one of the few companies that has been able to challenge the economic crisis that the world experienced during the pandemic. Bahrain has become a preferred economic destination for major global trade as well as for tourists, especially after easing travel restrictions and procedures to obtain a visa, all of which can now be done very smoothly and easily,."

 

Yousif Mahmoud said they are proud of the role played by the Civil Aviation Affairs in building bridges of communication with various airlines and in promoting and marketing Bahrain to become an important regional and international hub in the aviation industry, by attracting various international companies that manufacture, supply and operate the service of this vital sector.

 

“The ministry’s efforts in developing national human resources to support the progress of this country in all fields, especially the air transport sector must be commended. We are proud of our ongoing partnership with Gulf Air as the national carrier of Bahrain, and we appreciate the airline’s continuous efforts to develop the aviation sector in the Kingdom,” he said.

 

 

The sixth edition of the Bahrain International Airshow will be held on November 9-11. International companies that have confirmed their participation in the airshow include Airbus, Boeing, Indra Spain, DHL, DFS Aviation Germany, Etihad Engineering, Lockheed Martin, UAE Space Agency, Rolls-Royce, TAWAZUN, Texel Air and Thales. These organizations join the likes of Bell Helicopter, Chevron, Bae Systems, CFM, Aramco and Leonardo and other civil and military companies.
