Kuwait’s Directorate General for Civil Aviation (DGCA) has extended the prequalification date for the Kuwait International airport passenger support building to 16 June. The work will involve the design, construction and maintenance of the terminal. The prequalification deadline was originally 2 June.

The budget for the passenger support building, which will include annexed roads and a car park, is estimated at $500m.

The new facility is one of several expansion projects that have been initiated by the DGCA, which allocated $6bn for the airport’s overall renovation programme.

The largest component of the renovation plan is a new passenger terminal building, known as Terminal 2. This has not yet been awarded due to the high bids placed by prequalified contractors. The project is being retendered by the Kuwait Ministry of Public Works (MPW).

The rest of the renovation projects comprise an expansion or construction of new aprons and runways.
