Gulf Air To Take Over Management Of BAH

Fri Jan 20, 2006 8:15 am

Just read the following off another aviation msg board;

"Have been informed that Gulf Air is very close to taking over the management of Bahrain International Airport, this will see vast improvements in service and professionalism equal to GF ground and inflight staff. GF are well aware airport staff are a letting them down, considering BAH is their major Hub - hence the take over bid.

Good on you GF....their commitment to becomming 1st rate world class boutique status seems just around the corner".

Quoting GF-A330 (Thread starter):

Wow! Will this be the first case of an airline managing an airport or have there been precedents elsewhere?

What is the difference with GF and relatively new Emirates, Etihad and Qatar? Why is it that GF is lagging behind? Is it focusing more on an O&D market in and out of the UAE or are its level of standards much lower than the others?

The service GF provides in incomparable with other airlines in the region,
or even the world!
Many Gulf states withdrew there shares in GF and started an airline of there own; Qatar, Etihad.
GF has smaller ambitions, thats all.
What time is top of descent?
