MANAMA: Transportation and Telecommunications Minister and Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) chairman Kamal Ahmed yesterday visited the Civil Aviation Affairs building, which is being restored and developed into a private aviation terminal to cater to VIPs and business leaders.

The major revamp is carried out on directives by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister.

The minister was briefed on the progress of construction work and the various phases of the project, which began in October last year.

The minister stressed the importance of keeping up the pace to ensure the project adheres to international standards and is finished as planned by February 2021.

He noted that the private aviation terminal is one of the main components of the Airport Modernisation Programme, which is an important step in achieving Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030.

The project aims to give VIPs greater freedom and ease of travel through Bahrain International Airport and provide the highest levels of service.

It also supports the development of Bahrain’s private aviation sector.

Covering an area of 4,000 square metres, the project will feature a range of services to enhance travel experience for private jet owners, VIPs, and business leaders.

Representatives from Gulf House Engineering, which is responsible for the design, Hafeera Contracting Company, the main contractor, and BAC officials were present.
