A joint venture of National Aviation Services (Nas) and Airport Dimensions has been picked by Abu Dhabi Airports Co (Adac) for the construction and management contract of its Midfield Terminal’s 3,500m2 lounge, located at the heart of the terminal.
In a statement Abu Dhabi Airports said that the contract will combine Nas’ regional operational experience, and Airport Dimensions’ skill in managing passenger needs at international airports.
The lounge will be accessible to passengers departing or transiting through Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Commenting on the new contract, chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, Bryan Thompson, said: “We are pleased to be able to work with both NAS and Airport Dimensions on the construction and management of the new lounge.
“NAS’ operations within the Middle East mean that its regional knowledge will be invaluable in bringing this project to completion, whilst Airport Dimensions’ extensive expertise in airport lounge design and management will help to create a lounge that leaves passengers refreshed,” he added.
In July, Adac conducted an intermediate full operational trial of the Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC), and progress was made on the facility's operational readiness and airport transfer (Orat) process.
