28 July 2006
Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) has selected France's Aeroports de Paris (AdP) for the design and supervision consultancy contract on the AED 402 million ($109 million) air traffic control complex (ATCC) at Abu Dhabi International Airport (ADIA). The ATCC will be built between ADIA's two runways and will include a five-storey technical and support building integrated with a 110-metre-high control tower (MEED 25:11:06).

ATCC is due to start operations in April 2008 and will enable the airport to handle up to 70 takeoffs and landings an hour.
A contract award is also pending for another package on the estimated $8,000 million ADIA expansion covering the $200 million-250 million terminal for Etihad Airways. The US' Parsons International is the programme manager on the entire development (MEED 16:06).
