Gulf Air’s Acting chief executive officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi said: “When we moved to the new airport back in January 2021, we knew it would be a new beginning and new chapter in the Kingdom’s journey in aviation history, supporting the strategic vision for Bahrain to strengthening its position as a hub to facilitate the movement of millions of passengers. The state-of-the-art facilities and the varied options of entertainment for every type of passenger make the new terminal a great place to start and end a journey. Today we celebrate the 5000th departure which serves as a testament to our boutique strategy and our growing airline.”
