Bahrain Airport Company renumbers aircraft parking stands

Posted 16 October 2019 · Add Comment

Bahrain Airport Company (BAC), the operator and managing body of Bahrain International Airport (BIA), renumbered BIA’s aircraft parking stands, bringing Bahrain’s gateway further in line with international standards.

 

The operation will enhance consistency and align the existing stands with the development of the new Passenger Terminal Building. The increased number of parking stands will also enable BIA to accommodate the expected surge in air traffic once the new terminal opens.

The operation will see BIA’s current numbering system replaced with a more modern alphanumeric one that helps pilots to differentiate between the Cargo, Middle and Eastern aprons.

BAC chief development and technical officer Abdulla Janahi said: “The renumbering of the aircraft stands is a key component in the overall development of BIA, which will help to improve operational efficiency. Moreover, it demonstrates BAC’s continued commitment to international standards and best practices set by governing bodies, including the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and Airports Council International (ACI).

Janahi added: “Although the size and location of the aircraft parking stands will remain unchanged, the new numbering system will be more convenient for the growing number of airlines operating out of BIA, especially once the new terminal opens. One of the AMP’s most important goals is to enhance the overall airport experience, not only for passengers but also for BIA’s commercial partners. The new terminal will be capable of processing 130,000 air traffic movements a year, and we want to ensure every movement is as seamless as possible.”
