Gulf Air to insource FTM service

Bahrain's Gulf Air has said that it is insourcing its Fleet Technical Management (FTM) responsibility, Gulf News has reported. The move gives the company full control over the quality of aircraft servicing and safety standards, operational reliability, a robust aircraft maintenance system, fleet planning and availability, said Samer Majali, CEO of Gulf Air. "It allows us to refocus on our engineering and maintenance systems and processes so that we achieve technical self-reliance and self-sufficiency," he said.
