Dar Appointed for Major Aviation Project in Kuwait


Project Announcement

We are honoured to announce that Dar has been chosen by Kuwait’s Directorate General for Civil Aviation (DGCA) for a landmark design and construction supervision role at Kuwait International Airport (KIA), with the contract agreement signed on June 11th, 2024, with DGCA’s President, HE Sheikh Humoud Mubarak Al-Sabah. Spanning a period of five years, this assignment is divided into a 1.5-year design phase followed by 3.5 years dedicated to construction supervision.  The project encompasses four components, each playing a crucial role in the transformation of Kuwait's principal aviation gateway:


  • Upgrading the central runway and associated taxiways to a length of 4,300 meters, conforming to ICAO code 4F standards with a precision approach CAT III B.


  • Conducting the cargo apron finishing, which involves the expansion of the cargo apron to 1.5 km², designed to accommodate 77 aircraft stands, aligning with future logistical demands.


  • Establishing a new VVIP (AMIRI) Apron, including dedicated aircraft stands and a run-up area to cater to distinguished guests.


  • Developing airport support infrastructure aimed at augmenting the capacity of existing facilities and meeting the anticipated future needs, encompassing transportation and utility services.


This significant project not only underscores Dar’s prominent position in the global aviation industry but also strengthens our well-established track record in Kuwait’s aviation sector. Our successful delivery of the design and supervision of the Kuwait Airforce Base for the Ministry of Defense and the implementation of DGCA’s Government Sector Projects at KIA stand as testaments to our expertise and commitment.
