The comprehensive study, due to take about eight months to complete, will look at requirements over the next

30 years based on anticipated passenger growth over the

next 15 years to 20 million-25 million.

An independent project is already under way to carry out a fifth-phase expansion of the existing terminal building to accommodate up to 15 million passengers a year. France's Aeroports de Paris (AdP) and the UK's Jacobs Gibb submitted revised bids in April for the design and construction supervision contract. Government officials say that the long-awaited award is imminent (MEED 28:4:06).
