France’s Egis Group has been awarded a three-year consulting contract by state agency Matarat Holding Company to manage expansion works at 26 Saudi Arabian airports.
Egis will give project management and technical support to Matarat’s subsidiaries Riyadh Airports Company, Jeddah Airports, Dammam Airports and Cluster2.
It will create a guide for project implementation, quality control, and safety procedures, as well as improvements to design specifications and standards.
Egis will also create a roadmap to improve management, monitoring, and output.
Turki Almubadal, executive vice president of projects and technical affairs at Matarat Holding Company, said: “We are working to provide an attractive environment in Saudi airports for air carriers and passengers, by developing airport infrastructure through best practices to provide the best services at the highest international standards.”
Improvements to airports are in line with Saudi Vision 2030, which aims to increase tourism numbers and destinations in the kingdom.
