Manama, May 4, 2010
Shipping and logistics services provider GAC Bahrain has been chosen by Jazeera Airways as its cargo outsourced agent.
The agreement, which marks the beginning of Jazeera Airways' cargo operations in Bahrain, was signed by GAC board of director Mohammed Adel Fakhro and Jazeera Airways Cargo-Boodai Aviation vice-president and general manager Monzer Najia.
GAC Bahrain will be in charge of managing the dedicated sales and operations staff for the cargo division.
'To successfully kick-start our cargo operations in a new market and grow our business, it is important to have a strong local partner with in-depth experience,' Boodai Aviation Group director of sales and operations Robert Hayek said.
'GAC Bahrain is a natural choice due to their long standing presence in the market as well as proven sales and operational capabilities,' he added.
'As an International Air Transport Association agent, GAC's reputation as the leader in the field precedes it, and we have seen its ability to deliver.
'Through the new partnership we are able to offer our valued customers the capacity and frequency to move their cargo efficiently to and from the kingdom throughout the region and beyond.'
'We are extremely proud to be associated with Jazeera Airways, which is one of the fastest growing airlines within the booming Gulf aviation industry,' GAC Bahrain managing director Captain Peter Gronberg said.
'I am certain that Jazeera's outstanding reputation, coupled with GAC's own dedicated team of professionals, will result in a very successful and enduring partnership,' he added.
As part of its commitment to the new partnership, GAC is investing more resources in sales and operations staff who will be housed in a dedicated office in GAC's modern multi-modal facility located at the Global Logistics Services compound, Muharraq, ideally situated near the airport.-TradeArabia News Service
