Spurred by the directives of His Excellency Minister of Transportation Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed to support the operational plans of national carrier Gulf Air, the Ministry of Transportation’s Civil Aviation Affairs (CAA) Acting Undersecretary Mr Ahmed Nemat Ali held bilateral talks with a visiting delegation from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s civil aviation authority, headed by Mr Amjad Ali Toor.

Following the talks, Mr Nemat Ali announced that the CAA has successfully secured operating additional Gulf Air flights to numerous major airports in Pakistan, including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar and Sialkot. Speaking about the importance of strengthening bilateral ties between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Mr Nemat Ali said that this achievement would benefit the Kingdom’s national carrier’s current and future operational plans in regard to key destinations in Pakistan which serve as hubs for the Indian Subcontinent.

His Excellency Mr Nemat Ali emphasized the longstanding historical relationship between Bahrain and Pakistan in the field of aviation services which goes back to the early 1970s when an Air Transport Agreement was first signed between the two countries, giving national carrier Gulf Air the opportunity to launch its first flight to Karachi International Airport.

The meeting was also attended by Mrs Ebtesam Al Shamlan, Director of Air Transport, Mr Kamal Hefny Riyadh, Air Transport Advisor, Mr AbdulElah Al Amer, Head of Air Transport Services and Agreements and Mr Hassan Jassim, Head of Bilateral Agreements in Gulf Air.
