The Ministry of Transportation & Telecommunications has awarded Netherlands Airport Consultants a BD541,900 ($1.437m) contract to conduct an initial study for Bahrain’s estimated $10 billion greenfield airport project.

The Hague-based airport consultancy and engineering firm will oversee and coordinate the work of various specialist sub-consultants, serving as the principal adviser to the ministry.

The multidisciplinary study encompasses public policy, development strategy, technical, economic, financial and regulatory analysis and evaluation.

The new greenfield airport will eventually replace the existing Bahrain International airport (BIA) due to the inadequacy of its current infrastructure in meeting the kingdom’s growing airport needs.
