Gulf Air appoints first Bahraini female Station Manager

Comment on this article

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has appointed Ms Shams Al Doseri as a Country Manager for its Addis Ababa station.

This appointment makes Al Doseri the first Bahraini female to run a Gulf Air station.

Al Doseri has eight years of experience in Gulf Air’s hub station in Bahrain, starting out as a sales executive before being promoted to sales manager, and most recently being selected to manage the airline’s office in its capital as Country Manager.

Since 2011, Gulf Air has operated flights to and from Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and Al Doseri will be tasked with further strengthening the airline’s growth in Africa.

“I am very proud and delighted to take this challenge and be the first Bahraini woman in Gulf Air to represent the national carrier outside the Kingdom,” commented Al Doseri. “This assignment is of a national nature to me as I will not only promote my airline but also promote my beloved country to the world by encouraging more passengers to fly Gulf Air to or via Bahrain.”

Gulf Air is committed to investing in its Bahraini workforce and their career development. As such, it continues to provide opportunities for Bahraini nationals to take over senior positions in the company. Earlier this year Gulf Air welcomed the return of its Country Manager UK to its headquarters in Bahrain to take on the role of Senior Manager Sales, managing the entire Europe and Asia Pacific regions.
