Gulf Air Reaffirms Commitment to its Workforce Family

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, remains committed to invest in its Bahraini workforce and their career development by providing opportunities for Bahraini nationals to take over senior positions in the company. The airline also reiterates its plans on welcoming Bahraini aviation professionals and talents who work for the aviation industry in and around the region. Gulf Air is strategically growing since it has launched its new brand identity and commenced the fleet modernization programme. The airline launched its boutique business model concept in the beginning of 2019 and since then it saw positive results in a spectrum of extents of the business.

“We are proud that Gulf Air is strategically growing and with the adaptation of the recently launched boutique concept especially as we move towards reaching 70 years of expertise in the aviation industry – a wonderful milestone for the Kingdom of Bahrain.” Added Mr Kresimir Kucko, Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Air “The airline is growing its fleet with new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and Airbus 320neo and 321neo aircraft as well as expanding the network to new places to connect the Kingdom with the world. With this growth, we will definitely need more pilots and more aviation professionals to manage the operations with a strong preference for our talented Bahraini workforce to take on these strategic roles. The pool of talent in Bahrain is phenomenal and we are extremely committed in ensuring that the future of the national carrier remains in the hands of its people.”

“The Kingdom of Bahrain has been known for many years to be the source for national talents in the aviation industry. There are many success stories and examples of Bahraini leaders in aviation management and professional pilots working for our neighbouring airlines and aviation organisations.” Expressed Captain Waleed Abdulhameed AlAlawi, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Air “It is the perfect time to welcome them back to the national carrier and serving their Kingdom while being between their families in Bahrain. Gulf Air prides itself in continuing to retain generations of families within its organization and aspires to continue preserving its heritage by creating opportunities for the future.”

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 with 90% of employees that are based at the headquarters in Muharraq being Bahraini along with nearly 70% of its pilots. Earlier this year, Gulf Air welcomed back Mr. Rashid Abdulrahman AlGaoud to its headquarters to take on the role of Senior Manager Sales to in charge of the entire Europe and Asia Pacific regions, after serving as the country manager of the United Kingdom for almost six years. Also recently, the airline appointed Ms. Shams AlDosari as the first female Bahraini country manager and is currently representing the national carrier in Ethiopia and Mr. Mohamed AlHamar as the youngest Bahraini country manager to serve in the Asia Pacific region. Gulf Air is proud that it remains 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.
