More than 10 years of the Bahrain International Airshow
The Bahrain International Airshow, held under the patronage of His Majesty King Hamed bin Isa Al Khalifa, King of the Kingdom of Bahrain, continues to see further development, enhanced show features, and more opportunities for business, growth and knowledge sharing.
HH SHEIKH ABDULLAH BIN HAMAD AL-KHALIFA
Chairman of BIAS Supreme Organising Committee & Personal Representative of His Majesty the King
It is a great pleasure for my team and I to once again look forward to hosting the Bahrain International Airshow’s 2022 edition. With a momentum that perhaps has never been as high, we are planning a show that builds on a successful track record while giving impetus to the industry’s recovery and renewal.
Our show is at the heart of one of the world’s fastest-growing aerospace markets; with a surge of aviation infrastructure investment having taken place in recent years, including most notably, the new Passenger Terminal at the Bahrain International Airport, which started operation in January 2021.
This, coupled with our location as the gateway to the Gulf, makes the Bahrain International Airshow a strategic event on the aerospace calendar.
With ongoing patronage from His Majesty the King, BIAS 2022 is once again a collaborative effort between the Bahrain Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications; the Royal Bahraini Air Force, and in association with Farnborough International, all of whom work closely with our partners and sponsors around the world to create an event that reflects industry demands and delivers success. The 2022 Bahrain International Airshow is a valuable, high-quality and unmissable opportunity to network, find new solutions and leverage opportunities. I hope you will join us in Bahrain and look forward to welcoming you.
HE KAMAL BIN AHMED MOHAMMED
Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications
Connectivity is at the key of Bahrain’s economy, and the 2022 Bahrain International Airshow is back to connect the world to the Gulf region.
We have taken advantage of the past couple of years to vastly improve the Bahrain International Airshow’s quality and value in line with our goal of delivering a business-conducive five-star environment in which to connect the global and regional aerospace industry. We have a fully refurbished set of chalets that has proceeded as planned as part of a major capital investment project. On a national level, Bahrain has remained open for business, with no better example than the start of operations at our new Passenger Terminal building at the airport in early 2021. This US$ 1.1 billion project has now entered its second phase as Bahrain continues to assert itself as one of the Middle East’s fastest-growing economies complemented by major investment in aviation infrastructure projects and a forward-thinking approach to attracting international business. Our show has welcomed over 70% of the top global aerospace companies in previous years, and we are looking forward to welcoming more companies to a show which aims to provide you with a boutique feel and a value-added business platform in a country that prides itself for its hospitality.
We look forward to hosting you at the 2022 Bahrain International Airshow, now with more than a decade of success and a team that is ever more committed to delivering value to the global aviation industry.
