Posted 1 November 2016 · Add Comment

Gulf Air has recently commenced a five-month training course for the airline's global network of representatives – bringing Gulf Air country managers to Bahrain to take part in a comprehensive programme that will equip them with the requisite tools and skillset to better achieve their tasks, positively enhance their knowledge base and support their work abroad.

Meeting with the airline’s country managers, Gulf Air chief executive officer Maher Salman Al Musallam said: “We are continually exploring how best to deliver training and development opportunities to all members of the Gulf Air family in order to support our organization and ensure that all our markets, across the globe, have the best possible representation and that our colleagues in each destination are given the capabilities to succeed. Training and development is a constant process, helping us build upon the experience and knowledge of our workforce – an integral tool to ensure Gulf Air flourishes and remains on the cusp of latest developments globally.” 

Gulf Air collaborated with the Arab Air Carriers Organization (AACO) to provide course contents and materials which included a variety of topics such as competency-based development, airport route development and commercial management, IATA airlines sales strategies and strategic marketing planning. With both in class study and self-learning, the training course is set to enrich Gulf Air country managers with soft skills and technical knowledge enhancing their competencies amongst various competitors in their home markets. 

With over 50% of the airline’s total workforce being Bahraini, Gulf Air leads the way amongst its regional competitors in terms of nationalisation, while still maintaining a multinational workforce that reflects the airline’s position as a global carrier. The airline embraces a culture of leadership, training and development and strives to build a workforce of aviation professionals.
