Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

New Bahraini Airport Terminal Opens, Boosting Tourism and Trade

The new passenger terminal at Bahrain International Airport opened on schedule on Thursday, providing a boost for the kingdom’s tourism and trade. Four times as large as the old one and equipped with the latest technology, the nation’s international gateway will now be able to handle some 14 million passengers per year, according to the Bahrain News Agency.

The new terminal is part of Bahrain’s Airport Modernization Program, the kingdom’s largest investment into the aviation sector to date. With a planned total of more than $32 billion invested into a variety of economic sectors, the AMP is considered to be one of Bahrain’s most important national projects and is intended to improve the international airport’s infrastructure and services.
