Bahrain airport to get new aprons
Manama, June 22, 2011
New aircraft aprons that can handle aircraft like Boeing Dreamliners and Airbus A380s at Bahrain International Airport will be ready next month, said a senior government official.
"Of the nine stands, four have been handed over to Bahrain Airport Company. The rest are in the final stages of completion," added Works Ministry public works affairs assistant under-secretary Nayef Al Kalali.
Al Kalali said power, water and sewage services to aircraft are available through a ground pop-up units system.
"The project is part of the overall development plan of the airport. It aims to develop and enhance facilities and Bahrain's ability to compete in the aviation market,” he said.
"The ministry has earlier been involved in several vital projects under the development plan. They include the construction of a new control tower, upgrading the parallel taxiway and the renovation of the main runway,” he added.
He said the new facilities were necessary since there would be a shortage in the number of aprons in keeping up with the increased number of aircraft. – TradeArabia News Service
