This is especially timely given the additional challenges introduced by the Covid-19 pandemic and its resulting disruptions, which have made innovation, flexibility and adaptability even more critical to the expansion of the industry itself and to success and growth of its customers. Our panellists and partners from the private and public sector will look directly at the where and how we are seeing innovation, Texel’s Air’s pioneering role with the recent launch of our FlexCombi, and how we and our partners and peers can work to further meet the evolving needs of our customers.”

Texel Air itself has been a great beneficiary of the advantages Bahrain has and the vast incentives and support it offers to the aviation industry, which it has prioritised in its Vision 2030 as a high-potential sector and one that it is committed to further building its market leadership in the coming years.”
