New GSE fleet to enhance BAS operational capability

Bahrain Airport Services (BAS) has made an investment of BD4.5 million in renovation of its ground service equipment (GSE) fleet over three years. Nabeel Kanoo, Chairman, Bahrain Airport Services, said, “This investment is in line with Bahrain International Airport’s needs and comes as part of the Kingdom of Bahrain’s aspirations to become a major aviation hub.” This commitment marks a milestone for BAS and underscores the company’s unwavering dedication to delivering exceptional services to its esteemed airline and cargo partners, by enhancing the process of developing Bahrain airport’s operations, as BAS is one of the only companies that provides ground handling services. 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 an assessment of 1,386 equipment. These GSE underwent evaluations on technical competency, training and development, maintenance practices, technology and tools, fleet conditions and asset valuation.
