Captain Waleed A. Hameed AlAlawi, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Air said “We take great pride in being part of the official delegation from the Kingdom of Bahrain and hope this is merely the beginning of developing further aviation opportunities. During our visit, we have signed a number of great agreements that will solidify the confidence in aviation between the two countries.” 

Gulf Air and EL AL Airlines signed a comprehensive MOU which sets the foundation to discuss potential joint codeshare operations between Manama and Tel Aviv, as well as on the global flight networks beyond the two carriers’ hubs and contains plans for greater commercial cooperation in the fields of loyalty, cargo, engineering, travel technology and any area that can benefit both airlines and their customers. 

The airline has reached an accord with TAL Aviation Group to represent Gulf Air in the State of Israel. TAL Aviation is a Global Airline, Travel & Tourism Representation organisation with more than 35 offices covering over 50 countries throughout Europe, Asia, the Pacific and the Americas.

Gulf Air entered a Line Maintenance agreement with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) Aviation Group. Under the contract, the Aviation Group will provide a comprehensive technical response to all of Gulf Air’s airplanes expected to land at the Ben Gurion International Airport, including post- and pre-flight services and support for any technical issues. IAI’s Aviation Group provides Line Maintenance services to some 75% of the airlines that arrive at the Ben Gurion Airport. 

The airline also signed an agreement with Q.A.S. Israel for Ground handling, Cargo, Common Use Terminal Equipment (CUTE) and Lounges, and Newrest Israel for on-board catering.
