The airport will be built on six square kilometres of land in the Al-Manama area of the emirate and will be able to accommodate a variety of aircraft.
It will serve at least one million passengers a year and handle a minimum of 400,000 tonnes of cargo.
The project will be developed by the Spanish consortium Grupo Inmobiliario Whitelake.
Several residential and commercial properties will be developed alongside the airport.
