The $1.5 billion expansion project of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Jeddah is reportedly one of major projects eyed by suppliers in this year’s the Airport Build & Supply Exhibition, taking place this week at the Airport Expo Dubai from June 5-7.
The exhibit, organized by the Streamline Marketing Group under the direction of Laith Kubba, will showcase nearly 400 airport and aviation suppliers pursuing contracts on offer, according to Khaleej Times.
Other projects eyed by suppliers at the show will also include Qatar's $ 5.5 billion New Doha International. Germany, however, has the biggest national representation at the show, while France has the greatest increase in the number of exhibitors from last year. Overall, the number of exhibitors increased by some 25 percent as compared to last year.
Furthermore, 18 DCAs will be represented at this year’s exhibit, reflecting a 50 percent increase over last year. This year’s DCA’s include Saudi Arabia, Morocco , Egypt, Thailand and India.
Abu Dhabi’s new international airport will also be one of the major projects targeted by suppliers this year. The new airport will accommodate 120 million passengers a year, while handling the emirate’s cargo air transportation needs until 2050 as well.
