The airline also reiterates its plans on welcoming Bahraini aviation professionals and talents who work for the aviation industry in and around the region. Gulf Air is strategically growing since it has launched its new brand identity and commenced the fleet modernization programme. The airline launched its boutique business model concept in the beginning of 2019 and since then it saw positive results in a spectrum of extents of the business.

“We are proud that Gulf Air is strategically growing and with the adaptation of the recently launched boutique concept especially as we move towards reaching 70 years of expertise in the aviation industry – a wonderful milestone for the Kingdom of Bahrain.” Added Mr Kresimir Kucko, chief executive officer of Gulf Air “The airline is growing its fleet with new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and Airbus 320neo and 321neo aircraft as well as expanding the network to new places to connect the Kingdom with the world. With this growth, we will definitely need more pilots and more aviation professionals to manage the operations with a strong preference for our talented Bahrainis to take on these strategic roles. The pool of talent in Bahrain is phenomenal and we are extremely committed in ensuring that the future of the national carrier remains in the hands of its people.”

“The Kingdom of Bahrain has been known for many years to be the source for national talents in the aviation industry. There are many success stories and examples of Bahraini leaders in aviation management and professional pilots working for our neighbouring airlines and aviation organisations.” Expressed Captain Waleed Abdulhameed AlAlawi, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Air “It is the perfect time to welcome them back to the national carrier and serving their Kingdom while being between their families in Bahrain. Gulf Air prides itself in continuing to retain generations of families within its organization and aspires to continue preserving its heritage by creating opportunities for the future.”
