"This is only the beginning, as we will also roll out further training initiatives to ensure that all Gulf Air staff have the opportunity to develop their capabilities in support of Gulf Air’s strategic objectives and values.

"I wish all these talents the best of luck in developing their skills and using the outcomes of this programme in contributing to the airline’s journey of success.”
