Bahrain Air 'most punctual' carrier
Manama, July 11, 2009
Bahrain Air said it was witnessing an extraordinary demand on all sectors during the summer season mainly because of its punctuality and operations on time performance (OTP) for the month of June.
The airline had been the most punctual airline in the region clocking a 97 per cent OTP last month, said a Bahrain Air statement.
Ibrahim Abdulla Al Hamer Bahrain Air’s managing director, said, “This figure reflects the shared hard work and the exerted effort by all concerned divisions and the various sections and departments of the company, recorded a significant advantage for the sections of ground operations, maintenance and safety.'
Besides it also complements the success of the application of specialized technical levels and the best international standards in this area, he noted. 'Our employees have set an incredibly high standard of on-time excellence.'
'The increased frequency of Bahrain Air flights and new launched destinations did not have an impact on the flight schedule, as well as overcrowding of summer peak season.'
'On the contrary a professional handling with highly accurate departures and arrivals created the recorded punctuality,' he added.
Bahrain Air operates 91 flights a week, or the rest of 390 flights per month, to different destinations, such as the GCC, the Levant, Africa, Iran and the Indian subcontinent, operating on modern Airbus A320 and A319aircraft.
The company recently introduced brand new aircraft to serve the new launched routes. Moreover the economic crisis did not stop the company from focusing on meeting its passengers' needs and tracking market changes to ensure the best and high quality of services are offered in the ground and the air respectively.-TradeArabia News Service
