Bahrain Int. Airport/OBBI renovating CAC building

Bahrain International Airport/OBBI (Murraq) will create a new private aircraft terminal by renovating the original Civil Aviation Affairs (CAA) building, once the kingdom’s main airport terminal, Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) announced on Wednesday at the Bahrain International Airshow. BAC signed an agreement with the local Gulf Engineering House for the renovation work.

“The project is part of the Ministry’s plan to offer services to private jet owners through BIA, especially in light of the sector’s impressive growth rate in the Middle East,” said Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications and Gulf Air Group Holding chairman Kamal Mohammed. “It is also part of a comprehensive strategy to enhance the infrastructure of BIA and one of the main components of the airport modernisation program, which is expected to be finished by late 2019.”

BIA is currently served by Aventura Air Center
