Kuwait International Airport is to more than double its passenger capacity through a new terminal building, as part of the Gulf region’s plans to spend $90bn on airport development by 2020.

Designed by Foster & Partners, the new $2.1bn terminal will consist of three symmetrical wings of departure gates, with each façade spanning 1.2km to enable further expansion.

Other design concepts include a single roof canopy punctuated by glazed openings that filter daylight.

With the new terminal in place, the airport will handle 13 million passengers per year from the current 5.69 million passengers, with further development allowing it to accommodate up to 50 million.

Construction work for the new terminal will begin by 2012, with completion in 2016/17.
