Key projects include a new terminal, an aircraft catering building and security services facility
Kuwait’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has announced plans to spend nearly $8.2 billion on 14 strategic projects aimed at developing the country’s main airport.
Terminal 2 (T2) is being built at an estimated cost of US$5 billion at Kuwait International Airport and will be able to accommodate 25 million passengers a year. According to DGCA officials, a third runway and a control tower are also being built.
Limak Construction, part of leading Turkish conglomerate Limak Group, is the main contractor on the terminal project, which was designed by Foster + Partners. In June, it was reported that work was moving at a steady pace on T2 with 40% of the project completed.
Once completed, the project will be one of the most advanced and eco-friendly airports in the world.
