Manama, July 8, 2013
The staff of Bahrain International Airport (BIA) and Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) recently took part in an aviation security management programme in Singapore.
Held at Singapore Aviation Academy, the training course provided participants with a comprehensive overview of the overarching principles of security management in airports and showcased the best practices in line with the International Civil Aviation Organization standards.
The training also focused on ensuring synergy of security activities and measures at BIA, including customs and airport police from the Ministry of Interior, Civil Aviation Authority, and Bahrain Aviation Fuelling Company.
“In the light of the increasing passengers and cargo movement worldwide, aviation security is crucial to maintain and stimulate the growth of this vital sector,” said Fouad Farooq, head of Airside Services at BAC, who was among the programme participants.
“Bahrain is no different as airport security is given a significant attention, which is clearly evident by attending this leading training course.”
