Transportation Minister inaugurates final phase of new Passenger Terminal construction

Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications and Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) Chairman, Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, inaugurated the second and final construction phase of the new Passenger Terminal.

The project milestone will see the eastern section of the current terminal demolished to make way for the western part of the new facility, which is being built adjacent.

In attendance at the ceremony were BAC Chief Executive Officer, Mohamed Yousif Al Binfalah, representatives of the main contractor, Arabtec/TAV, and other officials.

The minister hailed the progress made during the first phase and the ‘Team Bahrain’ spirit of everyone involved with the project, noting that the work was completed without disrupting operations at the existing terminal.

He emphasised the importance of maintaining these high standards while working on the remaining sections of the new terminal.

“As per the agreement with the main contractor, and according to the planned timeline to complete the new Passenger Terminal, work on the second and final phase will start as soon as the first phase has been completed. The second phase of the project involves the construction of three gates in the western section of the new terminal, which requires the demolition of the eastern part of the existing airport,” he said.

The delegation toured the eastern section of the new terminal, and were briefed on the latest project developments, including the remaining stages of construction.

Following the tour, the minister reiterated that the Airport Modernisation Programme is one of the most important national development projects in the Kingdom’s history and underscored the importance of completing the project on schedule and to the highest international standards.
