The Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier Gulf Air has entered a strategic partnership with Joramco to facilitate the maintenance of the airline’s aircraft.

The activity will take place at Joramco’s MRO facility located at Queen Alia International Airport in Jordan.

Commenting on the partnership which was agreed at the Dubai Airshow, Alalawi said:  “We are thrilled to announce the extension of our decade-long strategic partnership with Joramco, a milestone that holds immense significance for us.

“This collaboration is a pivotal move in enhancing Gulf Air’s maintenance needs to meet the demands of our expanding fleet and the longevity of our fleet at the highest standards.

“Joramco’s expertise, top-notch service, and regional proximity perfectly align with our dedication to ensuring timely inspections, high-quality maintenance, and passenger safety.

“This partnership not only signifies an exciting chapter for both companies but also signifies our joint efforts to shape the future of aircraft maintenance and raise the bar for the aviation industry.”

Alalawi added: “Moreover, our collaboration with Joramco is set to transform our passengers’ experience by enhancing reliability, punctuality, and operational excellence.

“One of the significant advantages of our partnership lies in Joramco’s extensive experience and its close proximity to Bahrain.

“Joramco’s proximity enables swift aircraft transfers, minimising downtime and ensuring the seamless and efficient operations of Gulf Air.

“Together, we are poised to elevate the standards of aircraft maintenance and enhance the overall travel experience for our valued passengers.”

Currie said: “We are delighted to see the development of our long-lasting partnership with Gulf Air.

“As part of this new agreement, Joramco will be providing heavy checks for different aircraft types from Gulf Air’s fleet for the upcoming four years.

“The signing of this long-term agreement reaffirms our position as a leading global MRO provider, renowned for delivering exceptional services.”

Gulf Air’s technical division also handles its own aircraft maintenance, including A-checks and C-checks, using Gulf Air’s facility at Bahrain International Airport.

This helps the airline improve efficiency and reduce costs and manage its Continued Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO) functions, ensuring the fleet’s safety and reliability.
