With its first cargo shipment from Bahrain to Dubai under the electronic Air Way Bill (e-AWB), Gulf Air has become one of the few e-freight capable airlines in the Middle East. Samer Majali, Gulf Air’s chief executive said that the Bahrain hub could be a complete e-Freight station by the middle of 2014 with support from Bahrain’s Civil Aviation Affairs, Bahrain Airport Company, Bahrain Airport Services and freight forwarders in tune with IATA’s vision of achieving 100 per cent e-Freight by 2015.
