Bahrain air show to host 10,000 students

MANAMA, November 4, 2018

The fifth edition of the Bahrain International Airshow is set to welcome 10,000 students from schools across the kingdom as part of a joint partnership between the Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications (MTT) and the Ministry of Education (MoE).

Selected students of all ages from across public and private schools will be hosted at the public area of the event over two days - November 14 and 15. The students will be given the opportunity to enjoy the entertainment offerings, gain first-hand experience of what the aerospace industry is all about, and witness the spectacular air displays.

On this occasion, Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications and deputy chairman of the Supreme Organising Committee of BIAS, stated: “Community partnerships are a key focus area for the Ministry; we are keen on cooperating with various industry sectors and ministries across the kingdom guided by our strong belief that such partnerships are key to serving the community and developing local talent. Our collaboration with the MoE comes in line with the efforts of the BIAS organising committee, under the supervision and directives of HH Shaikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Personal Representative of His Majesty."

“The Bahrain International Air Show 2018 is the fastest growing in the Middle East and is an effective platform for negotiation and high-level meetings, as it brings together international business and senior government figures in the aviation industry from across the region in one location,” he added.

The Public Area at BIAS 2018 will provide an array of educational and entertainment activities and is set to include a Heritage Village, showcasing arts and crafts from the Kingdom and the region, as well as magic shows, flying simulators, and roaming performers in the likes of Iron man and Star Wars amongst other famous Disney characters.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy the aerobatic display teams, including Italian team Frecce Tricolori and Emarati team Al Fursan, as well as performances by some of the kingdom’s most loved performers such as DJ Leil, DJ Detour, Mo Zowayed, Banah, Bahrain Talking Drums, and Khalid Fuad. - TradeArabia News Service
