This deal, valued at approximately $1.21 billion, includes the purchase of 16 CS 300 aircraft with options for an additional 10 CS 300 jetliners.

Once the programme is complete, the newly modernised and expanded airport will have increased capacity of 50 per cent to take a total of 13.5 million passengers per year.Welcoming the deals, which included the design and engineering, and project management of the airport modernisation plan, His Excellency said: "The first two days of the expanded, third Bahrain International Airshow have been a great success with several large deals already agreed. For Bahrain, the agreements made by Bahrain Airport Company are a significant move to expedite the airport modernisation programme, which will herald an airport that fully matches the demands of Bahrain’s economy."Central to the day’s proceedings were business meetings with the major companies at the airshow, including French companies, Safran and Thales, Italian giant Finmeccanica, and US manufacturer Boeing. These meetings were also attended by Mohammed Al Binfalah, CEO of the Bahrain Airport Company and Mr Husain Al Shuail, Ministry of Transportation Assistant Under-Secretary of Security and Safety. In addition, His Excellency held a lunch meeting with a UK delegation that included Sir Gerald Howarth MP and Airbus Group UK, President and UK Trade Ambassador, Robin Southwell. During these meetings key areas of co-operation and investment opportunities were identified and discussed. Speaking about the day’s events, Shaun Ormrod, Chief Executive for Farnborough International Ltd said, ‘Yesterday saw over 13,000 people attending the trade event and today’s business attendance is equally as pleasing. BIAS is very much about participants and exhibitors taking the opportunity to meet with existing and potential customers in the Middle East and the last 48 hours have perfectly demonstrated this.’
