King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia has awarded seven contracts as part of its three-phase airport extension.

The contracts, which have been issued by Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), are worth SAR375m and focus on site preparation, such as land filling work, demolition and shifting of radio signal sites, and making accessible ground support equipment.

GACA said that various local firms were appointed for the ground works including Almabani General Contractors and Saudi Binladin Group.

The general contractor, Almabani General Contractors, will manage the renovation of the airfield facilities and revamp the runways, aprons and other facilities for the aircraft.

The project’s initial phase is likely to be completed by the end of 2012.

Once all three phases of the project are completed, the airport will be able to handle 80 million passengers annually, and will also feature a high-speed rail link and four new terminal buildings.
