Dr Osama Al Ali is the man charged with the commercial development of the Bahrain International Airport, a vital element of the nation’s ‘2030 Vision’.

The airport is one of the key driving forces in the economic and socio-economic development of Bahrain and the government has declared that new investment opportunities are essential. Al Ali will oversee the overall management of the airport, its expansion, and the advancement of many of its facilities, as part of a long-term plan to make the airport a world class destination.

In May, it was announced that a $36.5m contract to manage a major expansion of the airport had been awarded to Hill International. The contract was agreed on a four-year base term with a four-year optional extension period and has an estimated value of $36.5m over the full eight-year term.
