Gulf Air inks new air safety contract with Avisa
Manama, June 20, 2010
Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has signed a major new air safety contract with Avisa, the global aviation and airworthiness specialist.
Avisa UK and Avisa Gulf have joined together to provide Gulf Air with Continuing Airworthiness Management (Camo) services for the next 12 months.
Avisa is one of only three companies in the world to have won the Bahrain Civil Aviation Authority approval. This latest deal is the third contract in the past three years between the businesses.
“Using our combined efforts and strategic Mena based location we were able to provide Gulf Air with the service they wanted,” said Justin Goatcher, group managing director Avisa.
The contract further demonstrates Avisa’s ability to tailor its Camo services to meet the individual needs of its clients and their fleets depending on local regulatory requirements, operational environment and business expectations, he added.
“I am sure Avisa Gulf’s expertise and extensive experience in this field will be a great strength to our fleet,” stated Gulf Air chief executive officer Samer Majali.-TradeArabia News Service
