BIA hosts a full-scale emergency drill every two years in accordance with the regulations issued by Bahrain Civil Aviation Affairs and global industry procedures enforced by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
We urge the public not to be concerned about the situation and would like to assure them that all necessary steps will be taken by BAC and all the parties involved to ensure BIA’s operations, aircraft and passenger movement are not affected.
The purpose of this exercise is to assess the effectiveness and adequacy of the Airport’s Emergency Plan. The real-life scenarios enable us to test the capabilities and readiness of BIA’s emergency and rescue services to cope with any potential crisis. This bi-annual exercise is of great importance to Bahrain International Airport and helps us improve the safety processes and procedures in line with global aviation standards.
