Al-Jazeera Airways to build new terminal

24 May 2011

Location of new terminal being decided

A new terminal for Al-Jazeera Airways will be built and financed by the airline itself, says Mahdy al-Dakheel, director of projects department at Kuwait International airport, for the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.

The existing terminal at the airport is over capacity and until the new terminal is built, additional capacity is needed.

The location for the new terminal at Kuwait International airport is still being decided, Al-Dakheel said at MEED’s Arabian World Construction Summit (AWCS) on 24 May. A decision is expected soon.

The UK’s Foster & Partners is working on the design of the new $1bn terminal. It will have an initial capacity of 13 million passengers a year, which can later be expanded to 25 million passengers a year.
