German consulting engineer Obermeyer has been appointed to manage the development plan for Kuwait International Airport over the next five years, according to the Kuwait News Agency.

The contract was awarded to the Munich firm by Kuwait’s Directorate General for Civil Aviation, and will include the construction of three runways, five passenger terminals and two observation towers, once work on the airport’s Terminal 2 project has been completed.

The German company will also help to upgrade the airport’s work procedures and technical guidelines for aviation operations.
