This is not the first time that AZIMUT representatives have visited this region in the Middle East. An invitation extended to the company to participate in the tender for the supply of the automated system of air traffic management was the result of the previous contacts with the leaders of the metropolitan province of the Kingdom, held in the autumn of 2016.
“The willingness of Bahrain to diversify its foreign economic relations gives Russian suppliers additional opportunities to enter the market. To our company, the project on the modernization and expansion of the international airport of the Kingdom is of special interest. The amount of investment envisaged by the authorities for this purpose is more than one billion dollars. We are ready to offer the aviation authorities of Bahrain an engineering solution based on the latest innovative developments that are in accordance with the aviation system block upgrades (ASBU) Concept of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and with requirements for a future global ATM system. The introduction of our equipment will enhance the safety and efficiency of maintenance and airspace capacity of the Kingdom,” commented Director-General of JSC Azimut Asker Saidov on the results of participation in the meeting of the Commission.
