July 2018

Gulf Air, Bahrain’s national carrier, and Tamkeen have signed a joint cooperation agreement aimed at enhancing opportunities for the training and employment of Bahrainis within the kingdom’s aviation sector.

The agreement is tailored to Gulf Air’s requirements and brings a value-added, unmatched training experience to the airline’s aviation professionals. 

The joint cooperation agreement was signed by Gulf Air chief executive officer Krešimir Kucko and Tamkeen chief executive officer Dr Ibrahim Mohammed Janahi. The signing ceremony took place at the airline’s Muharraq headquarters in the presence of Gulf Air Deputy chief executive officer Captain Waleed Abdulhameed Al Alawi, Gulf Air chief operations officer Captain Suhail Abdulhameed Abdulaziz Ismaeel and Gulf Air director human resources Nouf AlSowaidi.

Kucko praised the role played by Tamkeen, saying: “Gulf Air is one of Bahrain’s leading organisations affording attractive and promising employment opportunities to Bahrainis and actively supporting the national workforce’s development process. As the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, one of Gulf Air’s long-term goals is to help enhance the aviation skills and experience of Bahrainis. Tamkeen is a strategic partner in many important national development projects in the Kingdom and has a long history of supporting Gulf Air’s many training and employment programs.”

Captain Al Alawi said: “This program is established at an opportune time following the recent announcement of Gulf Airs’ strategic growth plans. Eight new destinations will be added to our network in 2018. Gulf Air will be welcoming 39 new Boeing and Airbus aircraft into our fleet, of which five Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and two Airbus A320neo aircraft will enter into service before the end of the year.”
