Gulf Air continues to back Bahrain Airshow

Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, will again become the official carrier of the Bahrain International Airshow in its sixth and seventh editions in 2020 and 2022.

The airline signed a sponsorship agreement with Bahrain’s Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications’ Civil Aviation Affairs during the Paris International Airshow at Le Bourget, Paris, today.

The signing ceremony was attended by Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications and Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Organising Committee for Bahrain International Airshow, and Gulf Air’s CEO Krešimir Kučko at the Paris Air Show.

Gulf Air has been the official carrier since the pilot edition of the Bahrain International Airshow in 2010 and it continues to support this important biennial event in Bahrain.

Commenting on the renewal of the official carrier deal, the minister said: “The Bahrain International Airshow 2020 marks a decade of success since it first launched in 2010 and we are very pleased to have had Gulf Air as the official carrier of each of the airshow’s editions and a contributor to its success. We look forward to continuing on this success leveraging our partnership with Gulf Air, as the airline helps us to bring the leaders of the global aerospace industry to Bahrain.”

“We are very proud to hold the official carrier title of the very prestigious Bahrain International Airshow each time it is hosted in the kingdom. This is a fantastic platform to promote Bahrain along with our evolving airline and it continues to be a great international forum to network with key industry players,” Kučko commented.

He also added: “We have been the official carrier since the beginning and we are honoured to continue this relationship with our friends at the Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications. The airshow witnessed significant moments for Gulf Air as we announced our fleet orders in 2016 and two years later displayed the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and the Airbus 320neo to the visitors of the show and the world.”

The airline continues to support mega events in Bahrain that promote the kingdom to the global audience. Gulf Air is the title sponsor of the Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix, which established the kingdom as a major host of motorsport events in the region and the world. -TradeArabia News Service
