Bahrain International Airport
Bahrain International Airport is an international airport located in Muharraq, an island on the northern tip of Bahrain, about 7 km northeast of the capital Manama. It is the primary hub for Gulf Air and was the hub for the now defunct Bahrain Air. A BD113m ($300 million) expansion and refurbishment program was launched in the third quarter of 2006 which will see the creation of a new multi-storey car park and retail complex adjacent to the main terminal building.
Muharraq airfield is a military base located adjacent to Bahrain International Airport. It is run by the United States Navy and usually ships supplies in and out of the airport with many of them from other countries as well. The U.S. Navy, the U.S. Marines, the Bahrain Police, and others run the security at the airfield. Security at this place is considered one of the best in the world.
