Five groups of international and local companies submitted bids for the contract in early July, with the Holzmann/Al-Hamed team submitting a low bid of AED 1,534 million ($418 million). The 40-month contract calls for the construction of a two-storey building, 11 bays, six remote bays and a 7,000-square-metre shopping area.

The new terminal, to be linked to the existing terminal, will have capacity to handle 4 million passengers a year. The consultant for the terminal package is France's Aeroports de Paris; the client is the Works Department (MEED 11:7:03; 18:4:03).
