Bahrain Airport Company seals key agreements
Manama, January 18, 2014
Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) said it has signed two major contracts aimed at boosting its new internal communications platform and airport flooring at Bahrain International Airshow 2014.
A five-year concession agreement was signed with United Commercial Agencies, who will provide an advanced Digital Mobile Radio solution (DMR) to be used across the stakeholder groups operating at the airport.
This new technology will expand the capacity and quality of the radio system used at the airport.
This was followed by an agreement signing with Universal Enterprises for replacing the flooring at Bahrain International Airport. At a total cost of BD151,000 ($401,000) the current flooring will be replaced with a modern option to create a sophisticated and welcoming ambience for passengers as well as adding safety features to users at Bahrain International Airport.
The agreements are part of BAC’s immediate enhancement work at the airport, which is aiming to elevate the airport’s capabilities in keeping pace with the aviation growth.
The organizations were represented by BAC chief executive officer Mohamed Yousif Al- Binfalah, United Commercial Agencies CEO Manoj Bhatia and Universal Enterprises managing director Fawaz Al Mannai.
On the deal, Al Binfalah said, “Having passengers’ comfort and service excellence in mind, BAC is heading steadily toward realizing its goals of improving the airport’s infrastructure while diversifying its revenue streams. Following the agreements signing with United Commercial Agencies and Universal Enterprises, we are keeping our promise to provide secure and efficient travel experience within friendly surrounding.”

“On behalf of the rest of the team, I would like to thank BAC management for awarding the contract to United Commercial Agencies. We look forward to applying our advanced DRM Radio technology at Bahrain International Airport,” he added.
Fawaz Al Mannai said Bahrain International Airport was the gateway to the country and therefore it was a very special project for the Universal Enterprises.
