In fact, we already welcomed 2,581,724 passengers during the first quarter of this year, while the total number of flights in the same period also reached 24,000 trips, showing a steady growth of eight per cent in the number of passengers as compared to 2018.”
Al Jawini added:“Having been able to present our projects demonstrates our commitment towards ensuring a seamless flow of passengers and aircraft, maintaining the security and safety of our operations and improving and enhancing the airport’s services to be ranked among one of the world’s best airports. Our presence at this event also reflects our ability to adopt emerging global trends and work in line with the strategy to further develop the airport’s operations via projects that are expected to extend until 2041. These initiatives include the development of runways and parking lots; the rehabilitation of the baggage handling system and other projects aimed at the comprehensive development of infrastructure and all facilities at the airport.”
