Bahrain Airport Services launch investment programme to renovate ground service equipment.

Bahrain Airport Services (BAS) has confirmed a significant investment of BHD 4.5 million for the renovation of its ground service equipment (GSE) fleet over 3 years. This substantial commitment marks a milestone for BAS and underscores the company’s unwavering dedication to delivering exceptional services to its esteemed airline and cargo partners, by enhancing the process of developing Bahrain International Airport’s operations, as BAS is one of the only companies that provides ground handling services.

The fleet renovation project for GSE was carried out in two phases by the Central Support Division. Phase 1, which was completed earlier in 2023, included a successful assessment of over 1386 equipment. These GSE underwent evaluations on technical competency, training & development, maintenance practices, technology and tools, fleet conditions and asset valuation.

As a part of the replacement program, BAS awarded bids for over 220 new ground support equipment, some of which have already started operation, whilst others shall arrive in early 2024. The equipment included: Lower Deck Loader LDL & Electrical Push Back Tugs, Catering High Loaders, Conveyor Belts, Passenger Buses, Electrical Forklifts, Electrical Golf Carts, Baggage Carts, and Dollies. The addition of the new equipment will bolster BAS’s operational capacities, resulting in elevated service standards and heightened operational effectiveness and sustainability.
