Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) Chief Executive Officer Dr. Osama Al Ali has resigned, it has been announced.

Acting Chairman Kamal Ahmed yesterday praised Dr Al Ali's contributions and accomplishments during the transition phase that the company underwent as it took over the operations and development of the Bahrain International Airport from the Civil Aviation Affairs.


He added that once the transition phase has been completed, BAC will begin restructuring the organisation to implement the next phase which will be finalising the complete development and expansion plan of Bahrain International Airport.

This will see the airport equipped with the latest technologies and systems offering the highest quality of service and operational efficiencies to strengthen its regional position as an aviation hub and increase its contribution to the economic development of the Kingdom.

He said that the board is keen on pursuing its strategic plans to achieve the objectives set for BAC to manage and operate Bahrain International Airport efficiently and competitively in line with international best practice.

The company anticipates finalising the development and expansion plan in the coming few months.

The pre-qualification requirements for consultants to design and supervise the development of the new terminal have already been set, with evaluations and recommendations of the bidders nearly complete to begin the tender process.

Ahmed will take over the responsibilities of Dr Al Ali temporarily until the appointment is made of a new Chief Executive Officer carrying international experience and achievement in managing and developing airports.
