All the newly promoted captains have started their flying career with Gulf Air beginning from second officer and completing the required training and flying hours to become first officers.


Gulf Air’s Acting chief executive officer Captain Waleed AlAlawi said: “We are very proud of our Bahraini workforce and flying crew and I’m happy to see them work their way up and be promoted from first officers to captains. This is not the peak of their career but only the beginning of them shining in Gulf Air with opportunities to become senior captains, training captains, fleet managers or part of senior or executive management in the future.”
