Bahrain Airport’s new terminal to commence operations from 28 January

Under the leadership of Bahrain Crown Prince and Prime Minister Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Bahrain International Airport’s new terminal is set to commence operations from 28 January.

Under the leadership of Bahrain Crown Prince and Prime Minister Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Bahrain International Airport’s new terminal is set to commence operations from 28 January.

This comes after the Prime Minister recently reviewed the airport expansion project development, along with the new passenger terminal building, which will now be four times the size of the existing one.

In the past two decades, this expansion project has been one of the biggest national development projects in the region under the air transportation sector.

Bahrain News Agency reported that the new terminal can handle 14 million passengers a year.

The project comprises a considerably larger duty-free shopping area, two reception and hospitality lounges for first class and business class passengers, a central utility complex, and nearly 5,500 parking spaces.

An aviation fuel field, a private aviation building offering services for private jet owners and passengers, a private building for firefighting and rescue services, and a central security gate have also been constructed.

The Bahraini Prime Minister noted that the new passenger terminal and other related infrastructure development projects will create a more sustainable and diversified economy, which will, in turn, support the achievement of Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030.

He also appreciated the skill and dedication shown by Bahrainis to improve the national assets in the kingdom.

The Airport Expansion Project is expected to boost the region’s connectivity, establishing its position as a major hub in the province.

Moreover, the project will offer ample opportunities for citizens within the kingdom’s logistics sector.
