Business Plan Development – 2011

Aurion Aviation Advisors were requested by Gulf Air to develop the business & operational plan for the conduct of self-handling at Bahrain International Airport to ensure better service standards for the hub-carrier above and below the wing. Aurion Aviation Advisors evaluated the current operations and contrasted it with the costs and benefits of undertaking self-handling without engaging the ground service provider.

The developed plan captured each and every operational aspect in detail and provided Gulf Air with a roadmap to implement the self-handling process within Bahrain. Gulf Air is yet to implement the plan due to business and operational exigencies.
