Smooth airport operations despite increased passenger traffic in Bahrain

March 22-Operations at the Bahrain International Airport continued to run smoothly despite heavy passenger traffic because of the Formula One event, it was reported on Sunday. This has been attributed to the cooperation of Bahrain Airport Company's partners including the Civil Aviation Affairs, Bahrain Airport Services and Ministry of Interior.
"We created four committees – cargo, transportation, airside services and terminal operations. This committee system has been implemented since 2004, and members are extremely familiar with the Grand Prix arrangements at the airport due to extensive practice and knowledge,” said Mohamed Thamir Al Kaabi, Airport Director. He added that all four committees worked in tandem with one another thus making it possible for airport operations to run smoothly.
"Bahrain Airport Company is proud that the collective efforts of its partners have performed their services with dedication and pride," Dr Osama Al Ali, CEO of Bahrain Airport Company said. "This has proven successful with operations running at optimum levels despite higher traffic. These committees have worked in close coordination with all stakeholders, and have exercised control in accordance with a very sound strategic plan."
