New Passenger Terminal Building at Bahrain Airport on time for launch


The operations at the new Passenger Terminal Building of Bahrain International Airport (BIA) will be launched as scheduled, to meet all necessary deliverables, the Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) has revealed.

The National Operations Readiness and Airport Transfer (ORAT) platform of BAC is streamlining the airport’s transition to the new terminal building, co-ordinating among multiple parties, ensuring implementation of all strategic readiness initiatives as planned.

The ORAT World Summit 2018 was held in London from 26th June to 29th June 2018, and it served as a platform for airport operators to share their insights on the newly completed airport and terminal expansion projects across the world. The event involved participation of 60 aviation professionals from 10 countries. The event also featured several workshops by global ORAT experts.

Transfer of operations to new Terminal Building is a major success factor for the Airport Modernisation Programme, and BAC is taking all necessary measures to ensure the smooth transition.

The whole process of turning the newly constructed building into a completely functioning and operational terminal needs careful management. The National ORAT Steering Committee was formed to monitor preparations being implemented as per Royal Order (10) for 2017, issued by HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier.

When the construction of the building is completely over, it will undergo evaluation and operational testing to measure the efficiency and readiness of operations before its official opening.
