Abu Dhabi's midfield terminal opening delayed

Posted 7 March 2017 · Add Comment

The opening of Abu Dhabi's US $2.94 billion Midfield Terminal has been delayed by two years, GCC newspapers have reported.

The regional media have attributed the announcement of a 2019 opening to Sheikh Hazza Bin Zayed, Vice Chairman of Abu Dhabi’s Executive Council, who visited the Terminal this week.

During the tour, Sheikh Hazza said Abu Dhabi International will be able to accommodate up to 30 million passengers a year when the Midfield Terminal, originally due for completion this year, opens.

The Midfield Terminal is designed to house 65 aircraft gates and comprise 3,500 sq metres of duty free retail. The project is being built by a partnership of Arabtec, Consolidated Contractors Company of Greece and Turkey’s TAV Group.

Arabian Aerospace sources had earlier reported problems in construction of the roof of the massive terminal structure but Abu Dhabi Airports Company refused to comment on the reports.
