Bahrain Airport Services (BAS) has announced a significant investment of BD4.5 million ($11.94 million) in the renovation of its ground service equipment (GSE) fleet over three years,” Nabeel Khalid Kanoo, Chairman, BAS, said.
“This significant investment is in line with Bahrain International Airport’s needs and comes as part of the Kingdom’s aspirations to become a major aviation hub and enhance its role within the aviation and logistics sector.”
This commitment marks a milestone for BAS and underscores the company’s dedication to delivering exceptional services to its airline and cargo partners. The new GSE fleet will enable BAS to improve its operational capabilities, providing airlines and cargo companies with a more efficient and seamless service experience at Bahrain International Airport, he said.
The fleet renovation project for GSE was carried out in two phases by the Central Support Division. Phase 1, which was completed earlier in 2023, included a successful assessment of over 1,386 equipment. These GSE underwent evaluations on technical competency, training and development, maintenance practices, technology and tools, fleet conditions and asset valuation.
