• ADAC CEO steps down
  • Midfield Terminal Complex on schedule
  • Tony Douglas joins UK Defence Ministry

Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) has announced that its CEO Tony Douglas has resigned after two years.

Douglas, who joined in March 2013, is understood to have stepped down to take on the role of CEO for Defence Equipment & Support at the UK’s Defence Ministry.

Involved with the delivery of the Khalifa Port and London Heathrow’s Terminal 5 projects, Douglas will leave ADAC as the company claims it is still on track to deliver the new Midfield Terminal by 2017.

ADAC is expanding the emirate’s main passenger airport to increase its capacity from 12 million to 32 million passengers a year, as part of the government’s Plan Abu Dhabi 2030.

The expansion project involves several elements, of which the biggest is the Midfield Terminal Complex, which is being built between the two existing runways at the airport.

In December 2014, MEED reported that Abu Dhabi International airport re-opened the newly renovated southern runway.

The $99m Southern Airfield runway rehabilitation was awarded to a consortium led by US-based Lane Mideast Contracting and including local companies Drake & Scull International and the National Contracting & Transport Company in April 2013.
