Incheon International Airport Corp. has opened the Terminal 4 at Kuwait International Airport to begin commercial operations.
The corporation announced on Dec. 11 that it held the "Terminal 4 Grand Open Event" at the venue of Terminal 4 at Kuwait International Airport at 10 a.m. on Dec. 9 (local time) and started commercial operations on full-scale.
It had previously won a contract for a consignment operation of the Terminal 4 at Kuwait airport in April. Kuwaiti airport is a state-owned one with a 100 percent stake held by the Kuwaiti government and is the representative airport in the Middle East, which handled 12 million passengers last year alone.
The Kuwaiti government built the Terminal 4 at a cost of about $170 million to meet the rising demand for aviation in the future and completed it in July. In the process, Incheon International Airport Corp. was selected as an operator after competing with French ADP, German Fraport, Turkish TAV, and Irish Dublin Airlines.
"The successful opening of Terminal 4 at the Kuwait airport is a great achievement to prove the world-class airport management know-how possessed by Incheon airport once again," said Chung Il-young, president of Incheon International Airport Corp.
