Gulf Air Appoints First Bahraini Female Country Manager

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has appointed Ms. Shams Al Doseri as a Country Manager for its Addis Ababa station. This appointment makes Ms. Al Doseri the first Bahraini female to run a Gulf Air station. With eight years of airline sales experience in Gulf Air’s hub station in Bahrain, Ms. Al Doseri was selected to represent Gulf Air in Ethiopia and manage the airline’s office in its capital.

The airline operates flights to and from Addis Ababa in Ethiopia since 2011 and with this appointment, Ms. Al Doseri will take on the challenge of further strengthening Gulf Air’s growth in Africa. Ms. Al Doseri has been part of the Gulf Air family for eight years, in which she started as a sales executive and then promoted to a sales manager before her recent appointment as country manager abroad.

“I am very proud and delighted to take this challenge and be the first Bahraini female in Gulf Air to represent the national carrier outside the Kingdom.” Ms Al Doseri added at the announcement of her promotion, “This assignment is of a national nature to me as I will not only promote my airline but also promote my beloved country to the world by encouraging more passengers to fly Gulf Air to or via Bahrain.”

Gulf Air is committed to invest in its Bahraini workforce and their career development and as such, it continues to provide opportunities for Bahraini nationals to take over senior positions in the company. Earlier this year Gulf Air welcomed the return of its Country Manager UK to its headquarter in Bahrain to take on the role of Senior Manager Sales managing the entire Europe and Asia Pacific regions. With 90% of employees that are based at the headquarters in Muharraq being Bahraini along with nearly 70% of its pilots, Gulf Air is a leader in the Bahrainisation programme in the Kingdom as it provides the opportunity for local talents and experienced personnel to work in its various areas of the airline’s business.
