IATA accolade for Bahrain's national carrier

GENEVA (Switzerland), November 27, 2021

International Air Transport Association (IATA) has commended Bahrain's national carrier Gulf Air for its tremendous support to the global aviation industry during Covid crisis by continuously operating its flights in such challenging times.
 
Lauding its steely resolve, IATA Director General Willie Walsh said Gulf Air remained one of the few airlines that never stopped flying even during the pandemic.
 
He was speaking after receiving Bahrain's Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism and Chairman of national carrier Gulf Air Zayed R. Alzayani at IATA's headquarters in Geneva.
 
The two discussed a number of aviation-related issues, and elements of this vital economic sector to various revenue-generating fields such as tourism and investment.
 
Al Zayani commended Walsh on IATA’s efforts in supporting and developing the ever-changing aviation industry and highlighted the importance of its role in sustaining aviation, especially amidst the great impact of the recent pandemic.
 
Established in 1945, IATA is one of the most notable associations in the aviation industry, connecting many commercial airlines through its membership. 
 
It is also involved in setting aviation related policies and regulations in which Gulf Air has been a member since 1981.-TradeArabia News Service
