Westminster Group (WSG) FOLLOW has entered into a Strategic Alliance Agreement with the Gulf Aviation Academy of Bahrain (GAA) to offer the GAA’s aviation and specialized training services alongside WSG’s existing range of courses.

The agreement is for an initial period of three years.

The new partners have made it clear, however, that they intend for their agreement to eventually extend beyond aviation training courses. 

In an issued statement, Westminster Group highlighted how the parties will strive to “combine their individual strengths and explore business opportunities both within their own markets and jointly worldwide.”

Specifically, the collaboration will be focused on two areas. One is the Joint Initiative International Training Programmes (JIITPs), where the partners will offer each other’s training programmes at their respective training courses.

The second is the Special Joint Programmes (SJPs) in which the two groups will “jointly promote other products and services” beyond training.

Westminster's Chief Executive Officer, Peter Fowler commented, “"The International Civil Aviation Organisations ('ICAO') has just 35 registered Aviation Security Training Centres ('ASTCs') worldwide authorised to run ICAO certified courses, of which the GAA academy in Bahrain is one.

This initiative is a further enhancement to our recently opened Training Centre in the UK.

The Strategic Alliance is an exciting development for both Westminster and GAA, greatly expanding our range of services to existing and potential clients. It opens up new markets and business opportunities for both companies as well as increasing the capacity for the delivery of ICAO and International Air Transport Association ('IATA') courses through ASTC registered trainers in both Arabic and English."
