New terminal for 30 million passengers
To double passenger traffic
An area of 700,000m2
Abu Dhabi enjoys a robust economic situation, mainly powered by oil production (eighth producer worldwide) and a steadily growing tourist sector.
The region has grown so strongly in the last few years, favoured by its strategic geographic position, that it is necessary to have an efficient transport system that covers the current expanding demand. Along these lines, the government has decided to rely on the creation of a large airport hub that contributes to strengthen the emirate's position as one of the main economic engines of the region.
Abu Dhabi international airport as-is hosts flights from the main airports worldwide and has experienced a significant growth in traffic, with over 15 million passengers over 2013.
Therefore, the airport operator, Abu Dhabi Airports, has commissioned the construction of the new Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC). The required works for the complex to seamlessly come into service will be defined and performed by Ineco and Aena.
In 2021, the capacity is expected to grow to handle 40 million passengers a year thanks to the construction of a new satellite terminal.
All this will be used to determine the model and the procedures to be applied to guarantee proper operation of the terminal, as well as perfect service provision to passengers.
Moreover, global trials will be carried out, in which full processes, such as flow of passengers and baggage at departures and arrivals, will be analysed.
In all those years Ineco has developed and perfected a methodology to successfully complete the projects commisioned by its clients, even in the most complex ones, such as Terminal 4 at Madrid-Barajas airport and Terminal 1 at Barcelona-El Prat airport, two clear examples of best practices in transfers of large airport infrastructures.
