Bahrain Airport Company signs declaration with ACI World

MANAMA, December 9, 2023

Bahrain Airport Company (BAC), the operator and managing body of Bahrain International Airport (BIA), has signed a Declaration of Commitment and Collaboration with ACI World, solidifying shared dedication to airport excellence in safety and environment. 
 
The collaboration reaffirms BIA’s commitment to maintaining the highest airport standards according to international policies and procedures. Its terminal is designed for a seamless passenger experience, demonstrating efficiency across all airport operations to provide passengers with a smooth and easy travel experience. 
 
The signing is part of ACI World’s historic (Apex) 200th review at BIA that is based on International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards, international regulations and ACI best practices. The five-day review focused on two priority areas: safety and environment. 
 
Bahrain Airport Company CEO Mohamed Yousif Al Binfalah said: "We are delighted to continue our collaboration with Airport Council International World (ACI) through the Airport Excellence Programs (Apex) which will provide us with invaluable insights and recommendations to enhance our safety and environmental practices."
 
"Bahrain Airport Company partnered with ACI World for an APEX review in 2017 to enhance our Aerodrome Safety and Airside operations practices, and today this collaboration aims to optimize our operations and incorporate International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards and recommended practices, driving continuous improvement in our overall airport performance," he noted. 
 
"At BAC, we remain committed to providing a world-class airport experience for our passengers and stakeholders, and this milestone not only reinforces our position as a leading airport in the region but also inspires us to continually raise the bar and set new benchmarks in the aviation industry," he added.
 
ACI World Director General Luis Felipe de Oliveira said the 200th Apex review is a testament to the programme's relevancy, success and impact on raising aviation standards worldwide. 
 
"We are honoured to celebrate this achievement at Bahrain International Airport, a leading airport known for its commitment to raising the bar in all areas of airport operations. Our flagship program will without a doubt continue to be instrumental in fostering excellence in airport security, cybersecurity, safety, and sustainability around the world," noted de Oliveira. 
 
"We thank every Apex Assessor—aviation professionals that help conduct reviews, mentor team members and share knowledge and industry best practices to improve the sector," he added.
 
Earlier this year, BIA had achieved ACI Public Health & Safety Readiness Accreditation for successfully demonstrating its proactive management practices and commitment to safety and well-being of the terminal’s passengers.-TradeArabia News Service
