Bahrainisation success

Gulf Air’s 162-strong revenue accounting department is now fully staffed and managed by Bahrainis. « As one of the largest employers in the kingdom and a fully-owned Bahraini company, Gulf Air believes in encouraging and empowering local talents, » said Gulf Air deputy chief executive officer Ismail Karimi. « There is no dearth of Bahraini talents in the country – all they need is the opportunity and empowerment to assume responsibilities. « Gulf Air considers providing such opportunities as part of its corporate social responsibility and we are proud to have one of the key departments of Gulf Air now run by qualified, talented and experienced Bahrainis. » The revenue accounting department processes all revenue from passenger and cargo across its entire network, besides dealing with interline revenue of its several partner airlines and accounting of commission for its travel agents.
