Boasting a strategic location in the heart of the Gulf and over 60 years of industry-related experience, BIA has served as an ideal gateway linking East and West. Currently, BIA caters to multiple airlines and has been a key distribution hub to global cargo companies such as DHL, for over 30 years.
