Gulf Air has increased its stake to 44 per cent in ground handler Bahrain Airport Services, according to a report by Arabian Business.
Bahrain Airport Services provides handling services at Bahrain International Airport and said the cash injection will allow it to become a “major regional player” and added it is aiming to be a bigger player internationally.
Arabian Business quotes Gulf Air Group Holding chairman and Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications, Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, who said “consolidating control over Bahrain’s key aviation assets under the umbrella of the group will improve our ability to implement national strategic plans”.
He added for passengers and cargo it “will mean an improvement in the levels of service throughout the airport and a streamlining of procedures”.
