“The prestigious event is poised to once again put the Kingdom of Bahrain in the global spotlight and demonstrate to the international business community the outstanding capabilities offered by organisations operating in Bahrain,” he added.
Civil Aviation Affairs assistant under secretary (Safety & Security) and BIAS 2014 director Hussain Al Shuail extended appreciation on behalf of the CAA for Batelco’s ongoing support for the international airshow.
