 For Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, the third Bahrain International Airshow (BIAS) proved highly successful with the airline signing a number of key agreements, with a combined value of over USD150 million, for aircraft maintenance and product enhancement thereby taking the carrier another step forward in its strategic direction."The BIAS is undeniably a significant and strategic industry event with considerable positive impact on both the Kingdom of Bahrain and its national carrier," said Gulf Air Acting Chief Executive Officer Mr. Maher Salman Al Musallam. "Importantly, we have been able, in our capacity as official carrier of the 3-day event and national carrier of the Kingdom, to encourage growth in Bahrain’s tourism sector and promote it as an aviation industry hub with this significant business platform in the form of the Bahrain International Airshow."

The agreement allows Gulf Air to maximize engine availability, essential towards meeting high fleet utilization targets, while providing forward visibility of service costs, helping Gulf Air better manage costs and focus on passengers’ needs - important as it transitions from a period of restructuring to one of development. On the second day of the show, Gulf Air signed a 3-year maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) Agreement with JorAMCo to meet the airline’s Heavy Maintenance and ‘C’ check fleet requirements. lowered operational costs for Gulf Air while maintaining the highest quality standards.
