Egis will support operational readiness of Saudia and Flyadeal in the new Jeddah Airport terminal

Posted 18 October 2017 · Add Comment

Egis was attributed a contract to provide assistance to Saudia airline and its subsidiary Flyadeal in transitioning to their new facilities at King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA) in Jeddah.

King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA) in Jeddah has recently been undergoing major works that will initially expand the airport capacity from 13 to 30 million annual passengers. KAIA’s expansion is a huge and complex project that will be conducted in 3 phases until 2035, with a final target capacity of 80 million annual passengers. In 2018, the planned opening of a new terminal with 46 gates for international and domestic flights will clearly impact and improve how airlines work and operate to and from the airport.
 
In order to prepare Saudia and Flyadeal for operational readiness and transfer (ORAT) at the new terminal and to ensure that the move is managed successfully, Egis will support the two airlines through specific consultancy services, from project planning through to post-opening support. The scope of works includes a gap analysis and assessment of Saudia’s current status in relation to requirements and readiness within the new terminal that includes people, processes, and IT; an assessment of Saudia and Flyadeal business strategy in relation to the facilities; planning assistance for operation readiness including training, familiarisation, testing and trials; and support through the post-opening period.
 
Egis will work closely with Saudia’s Project Management Office (PMO). Also, this will require coordination with many stakeholders at the airport, including the Civil Aviation Authority (GACA), the airport operator (Changi Airport Group), the contractor (Saudi Bin Laden Group), the construction manager (Dar-Al-Handasah), Saudia subsidiaries, and government agencies involved such as immigration or Customs.
 
“We are particularly honoured to provide our support to Saudia and Flyadeal in this complex and challenging project. Our team will make sure to closely assist Saudia and Flyadeal to meet their expectations until operations at the new terminal run like business as usual” says Egis Aviation Middle East Director Jacques Khoriaty.
