Airports Council International (ACI) and Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) have partnered to conduct a virtual training course amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Named ‘Airport Non-Aeronautical Revenues’, the eight-day virtual course will include sessions from instructor Andre Bergeron, team exercises, presentations, and polling exercises.

The programme, which will be delivered leveraging ACI’s newly developed virtual classroom, will be the first programme outside of its Airport Management Professional Accreditation Program (AMPAP).

BAC Human Resources vice-president Hind Mahmood said: “We are pleased to become the first airport operator to roll out this milestone training and development initiative.

“Thanks to close collaboration between the BAC and ACI training teams, the course was launched in record time and tailored to meet our requirements. Our Tahleeq team members will benefit from the expertise and insight of one of the world’s leading aviation organisations.”

The course will study non-aeronautical revenues, which are crucial for the financial success of airports in situations like the Covid-19 pandemic.
