Delay T2 operations contract – Fears of monopoly


General Secretariat of the Supreme Council for Planning and Development has requested Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to delay signing the contract with a global operator for the management and operation of the new T2 terminal due to fear of monopoly, and marginalization of resources and administrative, financial and technical capabilities of the directorate, reports Al-Qabas daily.



In its report on the expansion project of Kuwait International Airport, the supreme council stated that the issue of signing the contract with the global airport operator should be studied from various angles before it can express its opinion.

These aspects are the need for full management of operation under a competent authority (civil aviation) with its technical, human, financial and administrative capabilities, study of Gulf regional experiences, study of the possibility of partial management system partnership in management and operation to prevent monopoly in the management of the airport, ensuring the need for this in the absence of a surge in the number of passengers annually, and studying the required period of operation.

The supreme council provided an analysis of future expectations concerning the number of passengers from the Kuwait airport based on information from Ministry of Interior,

as per which the number of passengers increased from 3.5 million in 2003 to 11.8 million passengers in 2017.



It stressed that the future forecasts indicate the number of passengers in 2029 will reach about 20 million passengers. The plan affirmation its reservation concerning DGCA administration’s call to expedite the establishment of a fasttrack airport and to start thinking about the future airport of Kuwait, which technically favors a different location than the current airport’s location
