Bahraini Ahmed Mohamed Abdulla Janahi has been appointed as the new Vice President- Ground Services.

Ahmed Janahi has worked in several duty stations of Gulf Air during his 24- year long career with Gulf Air.

Joining Gulf Air in 1983 taking care of ‘passenger services’ at Abu Dhabi station, he subsequently moved on to become airport duty officer, and duty manager in Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Manila (Philippines) , Dhahran (Saudi Arabia)  and Chennai (India).

He also worked in sales and marketing in Kathmandu (Nepal) before moving to Bahrain in 2004 as airport duty manager. He became the head of Bahrain hub in August 2006, a position which he held before being elevated as Vice President Ground Services.
