KUWAIT, Nov 2 (KUNA) -- The basic structure of the new terminal for Kuwait international airport is at 35 percent completion, said Minister of Public Works Abdulrahman Al-Mutawaa Thursday.
Speaking to the press, Al-Mutawa said that the construction operations were on schedule, affirming that a grand project like the new terminal will require a considerable amount of time and effort to complete.
Previously, Al-Mutawa said that the project would be completed in four years, down from the initial estimate of six years.
The new international airport development project is an integral part of Kuwait's 2035 vision as prescribed by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
Back in May, His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah and visiting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan set the cornerstone of the ambitious project which will cost around USD 4.2 billion.
The project, carried out by a Turkish company, will allow the airport to accommodate some 13 million travelers annually.
The number will hopefully increase to 25 million travelers annually in the future, transforming Kuwait into an important economic and commercial hub. (end) am.gta
