$483m funds boost for airline
October 2012 2605

GULF Air, Bahrain’s national carrier, said His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, through a Royal Decree, has allocated BD185 million ($483.42 million) to recapitalise the airline.

The allocation is in order to actively address the national carrier’s current position and secure its long term sustainability, a statement said. The funding will be used to fulfill the airline’s current debt obligations and meet its future restructuring costs.

The requirement for funding was a direct result of a series of unprecedented regional and economic factors, including a significant increase in fuel costs that Gulf Air faced, in common with other carriers around the world since 2011, the statement said.
