Bahrain Airport Company (BAC), the operator and managing body of Bahrain International Airport (BIA), announced that the newly registered Hala Bahrain will be including CIP (Commercially Important Person) handling services among its range of offerings aimed at further improving the passenger experience at BIA.

Hala Bahrain also signed an agreement for the provision of these services with its first client, Mena Aerospace, a wholly Bahrain-owned provider of comprehensive aviation and aerospace services.

Passengers travelling to and from the airport via private jets on government, private, business, corporate or chartered flights will be eligible to sign up for CIP handling services. They will arrive and depart through a special dedicated facility to ensure the maximum in privacy and luxury.

The services will include meet and greet facilities; assistance through airport security, passport control, and customs; transportation to and from aircraft, and to and from the terminal; and luggage handling by dedicated porters.

Hala Bahrain will be the provider of lounge services for passengers and airlines, concierge services, and a number of other airside and landside transportation solutions.

BAC chief executive officer, Mohamed Yousif Al Binfalah, said: “The aim is to ensure a seamless service for our CIP customers, an important part of our growth strategy going forward. Incorporating Hala Bahrain as our designated lounge service provider was one of the first steps we have taken to accommodate the expected surge in passenger numbers once the new terminal is ready.
