The Netherlands Airport Consultants (NACO) is preparing itself for settling an agreement with Iran to play formally its consultancy role in the construction of Imam Khomeini Airport City.
Mahmoud Navidi, the managing director of Imam Khomeini Airport City Company, let slip the news, Tehran Times reported.
The project coupled with Iranshahr and Salam Terminals as well as some other developments are parts of a master plan aiming at developing the country’s colossal Imam Khomeini Airport City.
Also, according to Iranian Transport and Urban Development Ministry, NACO is projected to offer its consultancy services over a five-year time span, an agreement which probably will be finalized on Saturday in Tehran.
Currently, Imam Khomeini International Airport accommodates 8 million annual passengers and with all future facilities of Iranshahr and Salam terminals in the master plan constructed, the airport could accommodate 30 million annual passengers.
It seems that finalization of the agreement will prove a turning point in Iran’s aviation industry to attract foreign investment, where Imam Khomeini International Airport will be the first aviation establishment to benefit from the unfolding of sanctions against the country.
According to the aviation roadmap depicted by Iranian Transport and Urban Development Ministry, Iran should be a hub airport over the next coming years, securing a place in the aviation industry of the region.
NACO is a global provider of airport planning, airport design, and airport engineering services which has assisted clients with realizing their goals for airport development at more than 550 airports around the world.
