Organisers expect large crowds at Bahrain show


Officials expect 50,000 to attend Bahrain International Airshow

Bahraini officials are
expecting a record number of attendees at the three-day Bahrain International
Airshow, which starts at Sakhir Air Base. All of the 40 corporate chalets have
been sold.

“We have had a tremendous response and there is a lot of interest from the
public as thousands of tickets have already been sold,” Civil Aviation
Affairs Under-Secretary Captain Abdulrahman Al Goud said.

This year’s attendance is projected to reach 50,000, surpassing attendance at
the last Airshow by 10,000. Officials attribute the gain to more spectator
events and an increased number of corporate chalets.

Keeping the increase of visitors to the country in mind, Bahrain has
prioritised the safety of the event and employed all resources and efforts to
ensure its success, His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman
Al Khalifa said earlier this week.
