Abu Dhabi-based Al Jaber Group’s Saudi branch has won the Abha Airport development project worth SAR1.8 billion (Dh1.76bn), it said in a press statement.

The project will include a new passenger terminal with an area of 86,000sqm that will accommodate five million passengers annually.

It will also feature 20 passenger boarding bridges, an apron for planes to park and parallel corridors to accommodate 26 planes simultaneously and car parking buildings that can accommodate 2,800 cars. The construction is expected to be complete in 3 years, the statement said.

Obaid Khaleefa Al Jaber Al Marri, Chairman of Al Jaber Group, said: “Al Jaber Group’ Saudi branch is witnessing substantial growth since we started our operations in Riyadh last year. We were able to compete and win sizable projects mainly the Abha Airport development project.

“We are looking to winning more projects in the Saudi market in the near future. Al Jaber Group is well positioned to benefit from the increased momentum in the launch of new projects in this strategic market.”

Last month, its energy unit Al Jaber Energy Services secured a major civil and buildings project from energy giant Petrofac Emirates valuing at over Dh460 million.
