Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, recently welcomed a new batch of 22 Bahraini aircraft maintenance technicians who have recently joined the airline and began their training programme. With this recruitment, it has reached 90% Bahrainisation in the position of aircraft maintenance technicians.
Captain Waleed Al Alawi, deputy chief executive officer in Gulf Air said: “This is a major milestone for us to be a leader amongst carriers from our neighbouring countries by having local, specialised and professional talents representing our beloved country. We continue in being a corporate leader in Bahrainisation.”
The airline has established a tailored programme in which it recruits and trains Bahrainis to become aviation professionals and continue Bahrain’s legacy of being a longstanding reliable source of aviation industry professionals who have served the national carrier and other regional airlines, it added. Currently, 90% of headquarter employees, 97% of first officers and 100% of the airline’s second officers and male cabin crew are all Bahraini.
