Construction of US$4.2bn Kuwait airport terminal to be fast-tracked

The basic structure of Kuwait International Airport’s new terminal is 35 percent complete, a senior government official has revealed.

Kuwait’s Minister of Public Works, Abdulrahman Al-Mutawaa, said construction works are proceeding as scheduled, adding that “a grand project” such as the terminal would require “a considerable amount of time and effort to complete”.

Al-Mutawaa also confirmed that the project would be completed in four years, instead of the initial estimated completion of six years.

Worth US$4.2 billion, the project is being developed by Limak and local construction firm, Kharafi National.

Both companies won the construction deal after offering the lowest bid of US$4.34 billion in 2015.

The Emir of Kuwait, the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, and the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan inaugurated the project in May.
