“After 20 successful years at Dubai International Airport, we feel confident that we can expand our services even further by partnering and investing within Bahrain,” remarked Ismail Ali Albanna, the executive vice president of Marhaba.
“We’ve worked hard to establish ourselves as a known and trusted brand and we look forward to bringing the same sense of reliability, quality and efficiency to the visitors and residents of Bahrain,” he added.
The new “Marhaba Bahrain” services at BIA are scheduled to be available to passengers during the summer season of 2012.
