Kuwait has awarded Turkey’s Limak Group and its local agent, Kharafi National, a contract to build a new airport terminal at a cost of 1.31 billion dinars ($4.34 billion), the Public Works Minister Ali al-Omair said on Monday.

The minister told a news conference that the project will be completed over six years and will raise the capacity of the airport to 25 million passengers from a current five million passengers.

Omair said the project was “one of the biggest projects” under the current government development plan.
