The Government of Jordan (GoJ), through the Ministry of Transport (the MoT), has launched a request for expression of interest (RFEOI) to hire consultants for the preparation of a PPP project involving three airports, North Shouneh Airport, Amman Civil Airport and King Hussein.
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is assisting the GoJ for the preparation and financing of three airports as part of a major upgrade programme to improve Jordan's airport network.
The contract is valued at €71,000 (US$76,900). The consultant will undertake the following tasks:
North Shouneh Airport: The project involves the construction of the North Shouneh Airport. With an estimated cost of US$170 million the project encompasses the construction of a runway and aprons as well as hangars for cargo and a passenger terminal. The airport will serve as a hub connecting mainly agricultural products from the areas of the Jordan Valley to world markets, in addition to passengers as well. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2020.
Amman Civil Airport: The project consists of the development, expansion and rehabilitation of the Amman Civil Airport in Marka. With an estimated cost of US$60 million the project consists of the rehabilitation of runways and aprons, development of new facilities and additional parking, upgrading of the communication infrastructure and electronic systems and the establishment of a private handling unit. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
King Hussein Airport: The project involves the development, expansion, and rehabilitation of the King Hussein Airport in Aqaba. The project is expected to be implemented in two phases. Phase I has an estimated cost of US$28 million and consists of the rehabilitation of the runway, expansion of departure hall and construction of a new arrival hall.
Phase II has an estimated cost of US$57 million and includes the construction of new air traffic control tower as well as civil defence, administrative buildings and security services. Phases I and II are scheduled to be completed by end of 2017 and 2030, respectively, when the airport is projected to reach a capacity of up to 2.0 million passengers.
