Client inaugurated a new hangar for private aircraft at AlUla International Airport in Saudi Arabia. The hangar has a capacity to accommodate private planes of different sizes. The airport has made the choice for CEDD airfield lighting for the taxiways leading from and to the hangar. The lead time of the AGL project, from getting the contract to commissioning of the installation, was less than 1 month. This is the first CEDD installation operational in the Middle East.
Client has awarded design and engineering contracts for a private aircraft terminal, otherwise known as a Fixed Based Operator or FBO at AlUla International Airport to French engineering consultancy Egis. The latest undertaking marks a continuation of the productive partnership between RCU and Egis, which first came to fruition in the form of a cutting-edge airport hangar for private aircraft. Adhering to eco-friendly standards, this 3,000sqm facility boasts state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained ground flight and engineering crews. In addition, it also offers long-term parking services, further bolstering its appeal to discerning clients.
Egis’ current scope of work is divided into two components: expansion of the existing hangar, to provide the necessary storage, maintenance and operations space, and the development of a new purpose-built FBO Terminal building. Egis will provide a comprehensive range of services, including a complete architectural design and engineering package for detailed design, airside design and airport operation support services, construction and turnover support services, infrastructure and landscaping design, airfield geometry and master planning, gradings, airfield lighting, markings, signage, and more.
AlUla International Airport, and its development, is a key element in RCU’s strategy to position AlUla as a premier global tourism destination for history, heritage, culture, and ecotourism. The airport acts as a gateway to northwest Arabia, enhancing AlUla’s rapidly growing status as a modern and efficient logistical hub for the region and supporting the comprehensive regeneration of AlUla County as a whole. Ongoing development work at AlUla’s International Airport is also firmly aligned with RCU’s strategic goal of boosting annual visitor numbers to more than two million people by 2035.
This is to confirm that the design works are still in progress.
