Bahrain Air in talks over AOC renewal
- Bahrain: Tuesday, February 05 - 2013 at 05:57
Bahrain Air, the kingdom's private national carrier, is in talks with the government aimed at extending its Air Operators Certificate (AOC), Gulf Daily News has reported. The carrier's operational licence, which was issued by Civil Aviation Affairs five years ago, expired yesterday and has not yet been renewed, CEO Richard Nuttall said. He said the airline, which celebrated its fifth anniversary yesterday, only acquired its new AOC two weeks ago after a full audit, but said its duration was limited because it owed BD1.7m in departure tax. "Usually, on an international level, the AOC is given for one year - but we have only been given two months and there is no airline related-reason to not give us the full year. We feel that we are being discriminated against by the civil aviation authorities."
