Mohamed Yousif Al-Binfalah is responsible for the implementation of Bahrain International Airport’s billion-dollar modernization program, which includes elevating the airport’s infrastructure and services to the highest levels safety, security, technology, passenger experience and environmental standards.
Al-Binfalah joined Bahrain Airport Co. in 2012 and was previously Managing Director of DHL Aviation Service WLL for eight years. Prior to that, he held senior positions at Gulf Petrochemicals Industries Co.
He was also one of the founders of a Bahrain-based facilities management company with offices in Kuwait, Dubai and Saudi Arabia.
Al-Binfalah is currently working with a group of companies to establish the Bahrain Green Building Council. Additionally, he was recently appointed Special Advisor to the Asia-Pacific Regional Council of Airports Council International.
Under Al-Binfalah’s leadership, the company transformed BIA into the most modern boutique airport in the Gulf.
With a strong focus on innovation, efficiency and culture, the company’s goal is to ensure that BIA stands out as a premier airport that reflects the distinct character of the Kingdom and reinforces its position as a financial, cultural and aeronautical center in the region.
Since assuming responsibility for the management and operation of the airport in 2010, the company has cemented BIA’s reputation as an attractive hub for airlines and passengers.
The new passenger terminal is the crown jewel of a massive and comprehensive modernization programme, which is revamping the entire aviation sector of the Kingdom, integrating a range of industries.
