TWO new state-of-the-art safety vehicles will be added to a fleet of six already serving Bahrain International Airport (BIA) as part of a BD1.3 million deal announced yesterday.

The announcement, which came during a signing ceremony on the sidelines of the Bahrain International Airshow, will see AMA Motors Group provide Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) with two additional aircraft rescue and fire-fighting vehicles on behalf of Austria-based fire services company Rosenbauer.

The "rapid intervention vehicles" will serve as replacements for two existing vehicles which will be used for training purposes, said BAC chief executive Mohammed Yousif Al Binfalah.

"We strive to manage BIA as a leading airport and elevating safety measures is among our core objectives," he said.

"This agreement signing is testament to our commitment to equip the airport with cutting-edge safety solutions and implement globally-required measures.

"We are the first and last impression for many visitors to Bahrain and we work hard to serve the travelling public with air travel that's both secure and convenient," Mr Al Binfalah said.
