Middle East Airports

Capital Investments Programmes - 2012

Air transport through Middle East airports defied the global trend to increase in 2010 and despite a dip in traffic in countries affected by the so-called ‘Arab Spring’, growth continued in 2011 and in the first half of 2012.
However, further expansion could be threatened by a lack of capacity at many of the region’s major airports, a situation that will become more acute when deliveries start of aircraft ordered by the leading airlines. In response, substantial investments are now taking place or are planned to enhance the region’s air transport infrastructure, generating significant opportunities for the sector’s suppliers.
This detailed up-to-the-minute report summarises capital investment programmes at 53 principal airports in the Middle East, outlining the current status at each location and featuring details of major development programmes, with project cost data and timescales where available. Key contacts and website addresses are also included.
Specially commissioned and compiled by an independent analyst and reflecting the status of projects in summer 2012, the report is aimed at a wide range of companies seeking to provide airport services, technology and equipment in a region in which passenger and cargo traffic is forecast to grow by more than 20% by 2015.
