Kuwait International AirportThe completion time for Kuwait International Airport (KIA) for a new terminal has been cut from six years to four. This has been announced by the government last month moving the deadline forward to 2020. This was confirmed by Emad Al Jalawi, director general for aviation safety and air transportation affairs while talking to the press in August. In 2015, the airport handled 11m passengers which rose to 12m in 2016. Specifically designed to accommodate 6m passengers yearly, KIA’s existing facilities are operating beyond its capacity.

However, according to Turkey’s Limak, the new international terminal will be in a position to handle 25m passengers a year.

In order to launch a new hotel in downtown Kuwait City, Kuwaiti retailer Alshaya has collaborated with Canadian firm Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts; in the month of last October, the companies declared that the Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya will shortly be open anytime early this year. The sprawling 140,000-sq-metre hotel will be positioned in the 22-storey Eastern Tower with 284 rooms to the market. It’s a part of the larger Burj Alshaya mixed-use development in the capital city. Hilton and Kuwait’s Al Rai Real Estate in last August 2016 had announced plans to further invest $1bn in a new hotel developments project at Kuwait City’s ‘The Avenues mall’. In the early months of 2019, both 158-room luxury Conrad Kuwait and the 430-room Hilton Garden Inn have been scheduled to be opened at the shopping centre.
