Expansion of Bahrain AIM Systems to accommodate GCC IFPS Zone

The Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications, Bahrain Civil Aviation Affairs, has started the Expansion of Bahrain Aeronautical Information Management Systems Project with the aim of hosting and accommodating the GCC states' flight plans as a fundamental sub-regional project that will eventually expand to cover the MID Region states. This project is a confirmation of the Kingdom of Bahrain's superiority and efficiency on a regional and global level.

The main goal of this project is to manage the region's flight plans adequately in line with the ICAO Global Air Navigation Plan to match the Advanced Global Avionic technologies and accommodate the present and future growth of traffic in the most efficient and system interoperable manner.

To achieve this objective, the existing Bahrain Aeronautical Information System (BAIMS2) hardware and software is being upgraded to a newer version with more power and capacity, allowing for the implementation of the Bahrain IFPS and our readiness for the GCC Zone IFPS. The upgraded version, provided by Indra Avitech GmbH, is a comprehensive solution for the automation of the AIM process in Bahrain and in compliance with ICAO amendments and requirements.

Additionally, a Disaster Recovery System (DRS) will be commissioned to ensure business continuity. The project was signed with Indra Avitech GmbH in the 4th Quarter of 2018 and is currently in the final stages, with activation and completion scheduled to be finished by the end of July 2023.
