Gulf Air has been receiving representatives from cargo agents near and far with firms from a number of South East Asian countries last week and earlier in August, agents from Kuwait.
The agents have been visiting Gulf Air to take part in what the airline describes as an, “incentive and familiarization visit,” to experience the Kingdom of Bahrain and learn about Gulf Air’s products. Gulf Air’s cargo capabilities include live animals, produce, electronics and furniture.
The South East Asian agents visiting Gulf Air include, Speedmark Philippines, DSV Air & Sea and DHL Global Forwarding, Harpers Freight International Air Cargo, East-West Logistics and Trans Air Cargo. The agents from Kuwait included, Caesar’s Cargo and Hazmat Logistics.
Earlier this month, Gulf Air increased its flights between Bahrain and Cairo from 12 to 14 weekly flights from 24 August. The Kingdom of Bahrain’s Civil Aviation Authority and the Arab Republic of Egypt’s Civil Aviation Authority had recently agreed to increase air traffic rights between the two countries.
