A $4.2bn passenger terminal building is being developed by Turkey's Limak at Kuwait International Airport.

A senior Kuwaiti official assured the country is on track to complete the construction of Kuwait International Airport's $4.2bn (KWD1.3bn) upcoming passenger terminal as scheduled. 

Minister of Public Works Abdulrahman Al-Mutawa said work is progressing as scheduled since its commencement in December 2016. 

During a site inspection on 16 January, 2017, Al-Mutawa reportedly said that "more time might be needed to thrash out some problems such as the presence of civil and military installations at the location". 

According to Kuwait Times, he added: "Such hurdles will be tackled through coordination with the relevant authorities." 

A special supervision panel will also be established for the project, adding he is keen to ensure the mega project completes in time. 

Ghaleb Shlash, the ministry’s undersecretary for construction projects, said the passenger terminal's development would span six years, according to contract terms. 

Turkey's Limak Group and its local agent, Kharafi National, were awarded the passenger terminal's construction contract last May.
