Kuwait's Ministry of Public Works has announced that a $3.3bn passenger terminal under construction at Kuwait International Airport (KIA) is due to open in September 2016.

The terminal will transform KIA into a regional hub, Kuwait's state news agency Kuna reported Sunday, citing Faisal Majeed, acting director of the head of the advisory department at the ministry.

The project was implemented under a decision by Kuwait's Council of Ministers in 2008, in coordination with the Department of Civil Aviation.

The new terminal will accommodate 13m passengers a year in the first phase, with the ability to increase this number to 25m and to 50m in later phases.
