Travel and Tourism is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing industries. It has not only become a major source of revenue for governments and the private sectors but also provides employment to millions of people worldwide directly and indirectly through many associated service industries. The travel and tourism industry offers many job opportunities in airlines, travel houses, hotels, civil aviation affairs, government tourism offices, immigration and custom services, and many associated service industries like tourism promotion and sales and tourism guides and airline catering that require well trained and enthusiastic industry professionals.

The rapid expansion in the field of travel and tourism coupled with the growing demand for well trained staff prompted Bahrain Training Institute to set up a Travel Academy in 2007. The Academy aims to equip the Bahraini youths with the required skills and knowledge in the field of travel and tourism. Since its inception, the Travel Academy trained staff of various airlines, travel agents, and novices to gain internationally recognized qualifications.
