Manama — Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has seen its information technology department recognised threefold recently — winning regionally acclaimed awards for its IT infrastructure and development.

The airline’s efficient implementation of Mobile Device Management for Electronic Flight Bags — that were recently rolled out across its fleet and pilots — saw Gulf Air win the Network Middle East Innovation award for “Wireless Implementation of the Year”, while its security framework for securing its Hybrid Cloud architecture saw the national carrier secure the “Best Cloud Security Implementation” Award for 2015 at the Gulf Information Security Exhibition and Conference (GISEC).

Most recently, Gulf Air won the Best “Virtualisation Project” Award at the Network World Middle East Awards — CNME — for its continuous efforts to qualify Information Technology in innovative ways to deliver competitive advantage and enhance business value.

Gulf Air A/chief executive officer Maher Salman Al Musallam said: “The Gulf Air family strives to excel in all areas — ensuring that our passengers’ experience onboard our airline is a superior one, across a broad spectrum of deliverables. I am pleased to see Gulf Air recognised yet again as we consistently work towards our ultimate goal and vision.”
