Formed in 2013 we are a Bahrain registered airline dedicated to providing third party cargo charter operations to a wide range of customers with diverse consignment requirements. Our B737-300F aircraft provide flexibility and versatility to service the GCC region and beyond. The fleet is maintained from our purpose built Bahrain engineering hangar facility. The hangar was established to provide 24/7 access to support our own and third party operators. Operators will be supported by experienced licensed aircraft engineers and an extensive range of GSE/tooling and hangar equipment capable of supporting line and base maintenance requirements.

We hold a Bahrain Air Operators Certificate and BCAA 145 Line Maintenance Approval. Our state of the art Maintenance and Repair Organisation (MRO) facilities support airframe (line and base) services with technical support encompassing engineering, planning and material services. Our MRO services are supported by an experienced and qualified team of licensed engineers, aviation management and technical experts including B1 and B2 engineers that can troubleshoot and rectify technical issues on Airbus A300-B4, A300-600, A320, A330 and Boeing 737, 747, 757 and 767 aircraft.
