2.2.6 Egypt Marsa Alam International Airport

Airport Overview

Marsa Alam is an international airport in Egypt and is the first airport in aviation history operating under a complete BOT system. EMAK Marsa Alam for Management & Operation of Airports SAE, a subsidiary of the M.A. Al-Kharafi Group of Kuwait, had successfully negotiated the 40-year BOT concession agreement with the Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority. The new airport is operated under a separate agreement by Aeroports de Paris. The 3,240 meter runway can accommodate Boeing 737 - 757 - 767, Airbus 320 - 310 - 300 jets and similar aircrafts; whilst the taxi-ways permit easy and quick access to the terminal building.

All services and aids necessary for safe operation are incorporated, including rescue services, fully equipped control tower, navigational aids and support facilities. The terminal has a modular design, which can be easily expanded to accommodate up to 4 million passengers a year. All areas, including the secure "check-in" hall, are fully air-conditioned and a number of restaurants, duty-free shops, and other retail outlets are provided for passengers.
