Fraport Frankfurt Airport Services Worldwide has launched a multi-year project to provide Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) with comprehensive operational readiness and airport transfer (ORAT) consulting services for the development of new passenger terminal at Bahrain International Airport.
Under the terms of the deal, Fraport will also offer services for the apron area, fire station, fuel farm and aircraft maintenance facilities at the airport.
The German airport operator will provide its complete range of ORAT services in three consulting phases that would continue for a period of 32 months and require a total of 4,700 project man-days.
Fraport ORAT director Alexander Larisch said: “Our unique ORAT programme allows us to find and solve any deficiencies relating to the opening of new terminals and other airport infrastructure – well before inauguration day.
“Operational trials are one of our most powerful tools to highlight critical issues, while proving the functionality of new facilities and systems, as well as the preparedness of staff. Furthermore, these trials establish a platform for all relevant stakeholders to work closely together.”
Fraport’s ORAT services and tools involve project management; concepts and standard operating procedures (SOP); training and familiarisation, human resources strategy; operational trials (simulation); and airport relocation and post-inauguration support.

The ORAT team focuses on major airport processes defined by the facilities, systems, procedures, and staff to identify and remedy critical issues that would negatively affect the smooth operations of the new airport facility.
Slated for opening in 2019, the new passenger terminal at Bahrain International Airport will be able to handle 14 million passengers each year.
