Gulf Air welcomes experienced Bahraini pilots

MANAMA, December 6, 2021

Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, has welcomed a new batch of experienced Bahraini pilots who began operating flights after completing the necessary vigorous ground and base training courses. 
The new batch of pilots joined the national carrier from neighbouring regional airlines, a statement from Gulf Air said.
The pilots, Yaser Al Madani and Mohammed Yaquob, joined as First Officers. 
Acting Chief Executive Officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi congratulated the new pilots for passing the selection process, and noted: “We pride ourselves to have a high rate of local pilots comparing to regional carriers. This is a milestone for us to be leaders amongst carriers from our neighbouring countries by having local, specialised and professional talents representing our Kingdom in the skies.” 
He added: “We were able to offer both Bahraini first officers the opportunity of employment in Gulf Air and unite with their families after serving abroad for years. This is important for us to be able to support Bahrainis abroad to return to the Kingdom and serve the national carrier.”
A spokesperson said Gulf Air selects only the top pilots based on their performance; together in compliance with the high standards that the airline has set for its pilots and the Bahrain Civil Aviation Affairs’ safety regulations.
Recently, Gulf Air appointed nine Bahraini professionals in various roles in the Operations Division. The airline continues to provide opportunities for Bahraini nationals to take over higher management positions in the company.-TradeArabia News Service
