The Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) has signed a deal with Aeroports de Paris Ingenierie (ADPi) to prepare an airport development plan and infrastructure concept design for the Bahrain International Airport expansion.
Under the agreement, ADPi, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Aeroports de Paris Group, will develop the Bahrain International Airport expansion master plan over two phases.
The first phase, to be finished in two years, will involve short-term solutions to improve the interim capacity of the existing terminal, according to gulf-daily-news.com.
It will also include modernisation of the current facilities such as the check-in area, arrival hall, departure gates, passenger transfer area and additional retail outlets at the airport.
The second phase will be a comprehensive long-term expansion master plan and will begin at the same time as phase one.
It will address new terminal facilities, runway expansion, taxiway, aircraft maintenance hangars, cargo, general aviation and infrastructure.
