The officials of Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKA) have announced that it will award a contract of US$2.8 billion to build a second terminal at Imam Khomeini Airport in Tehran. Necessary measures are being carried out to prepare contract documents and facilitate the start of study, design and implementation of the project, and the contract will be signed with an Iranian investor.

The project is part of a plan to expand the capacity of the airport from 10 to 25 million passengers a year and involves the development of a second terminal (T2). Located 30 km southwest of Tehran, the airport has one runway and one main terminal. The project has been on hold since 2017, due to the cancellation of the agreement between Iran and Bouygues Group.

The ultimate plan is to construct also a third terminal to raise capacity up to 90 million passengers a year.
