By Wendy Morley

On January 10, His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister of Bahrain, toured Bahrain International Airport to review developments on the Airport Expansion Project, and the readiness of the Passenger Terminal Building. During the visit, after briefings by the Minister of Transportation and Telecommunication, HE Kamal bin Ahmed, HRH the Crown Prince and Prime Minister announced that the terminal will open on January 28. The new terminal will have the capacity to handle 14 million passengers a year.

HRH was also briefed on the latest developments of the Airport Expansion Project as well as the completion of the new Passenger Terminal Building, designed and constructed using the latest in innovative technologies and as per international standards and environmental best practices.

HRH Prince Salman toured the new Passenger Terminal Building, accompanied by the Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the Ministerial Committee for Development and Infrastructure Projects, HE Shaikh Khalid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, and the Minister of Finance and National Economy, HE Shaikh Salman bin Khalifa Al Khalifa

The terminal, part of the country's Vision 2030 economic program, had originally been set to open in early 2020. The expansion will provide opportunities for citizens in the logistics sector, a key sector of Bahrain’s diversifying economy, and will strengthen its position as an important hub in the region.

In addition to the new passenger terminal, the US$1.1 billion project includes a greatly expanded duty-free shopping area, a central utility complex, 5,500 parking spaces, two lounges for first class and business class travelers, a private aviation building providing services for private jet owners and passengers, and more.
