DHL partners with Bahrain CAA for Paris Air Show
DHL is partnering with Bahrain's Civil Aviation Affairs when they participate at the Paris Air Show from tomorrow.
The group will showcase and promote Bahrain's aviation sector, including the forthcoming Bahrain international Airshow, which will be held at the Sakhir Air Base from 19 to 21 January 2012.
"We are delighted to support the Bahrain CAA in promoting Bahrain as an aviation hub to the rest of the world," said Ian Carey, vice president of aviation, DHL Express - Asia Pacific, East Europe, Middle East and Africa. "DHL is a strong part of Bahrain's aviation history. DHL Express has been here for 30 years and has based its Middle East air network operations in Bahrain for 18 years."
Historically, Bahrain was a gateway between East and West, whilst more recently it has become a strategic hub for the Northern Gulf. As part of Bahrain's Vision 2030, the CAA is driving the growth of the aviation sector in the Kingdom.
"The Paris Air Show, which takes place every two years, is an important event for us to participate in as it gathers together key industry figures from the aviation world. We are delighted to have the support of DHL at the Paris Air Show, as our long term aviation partner. Together we are able to immediately demonstrate the benefits of Bahrain as a regional gateway," said Captain Abdulraham Al Gaoud, undersecretary for Civil Aviation Affairs.
