Kuwait may re-tender airport expansion project.

According to the media reports , that Abdulaziz Abdullatif Al-Ibrahim, Kuwait’s Minister of Public Works has approved to extent the work of the Kuwait’s international airport new terminal’s tender committee for another two weeks.

The source, who was cited by Arabic daily Alanba newspaper, stated that the committee may approve the tender final result or decide that it shall be re-tendered.

Early November , A consortium of Kuwait’s Kharafi National and Turkey’s Limak Holding have submitted the lowest bid for a KD1.386 billion ($4.78 billion) contract to build a new terminal at Kuwait’s international airport, the tender committee said in a statement on Monday.


The bids have been referred to the Ministry of Public Works to study and make a final recommendation, the statement said. The lowest bidder is usually likely to win the contract but the statement did not specify whether the contract has been awarded yet.

Other bidders for the contract included China State Construction Engineering Corporation and Dubai-based Arabtec.

Under the contract, a new terminal for Kuwait International Airport and a new runway will be built in addition to around 30 gates to boost the facility’s capacity from the current 7 million passengers to 13 million in 2016.
