Dutch Firm Signs IKIA Deal

Iran on Saturday awarded a deal to the Netherlands Airport Consultant Company for the development of a town in the vicinity of the Imam Khomeini International Airport, Iran’s largest airport 35 km south of Tehran.
The contract was signed by Mahmoud Navidi, CEO of IKIA Airport City Company, and Kiel Cloisterville, vice president of NACO, according to a statement on the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development’s website.
The Dutch firm has agreed to provide consulting services during Phase 1 of the development plan for five years.
The project’s first phase includes completion of Salam Terminal, slated for 2016, and Iranshahr Terminal, expected to become operational two years later.
Salam will accommodate five million travelers a year while Iranshahr will have a capacity  of 20 to 22 million passengers every year. The two terminals will increase IKIA’s annual capacity from eight million to 30 million passengers.
Iran is targeting 20 million tourists per year by 2025, turning tourism into a $30 billion industry.
NACO, which identifies itself as a global provider of airport planning, airport design, and airport engineering services, has so far executed projects in 550 airports worldwide and recently won a competition to design the Beijing Daxing International Airport.
In September, the French group AccorHotels announced the opening of Ibis hotel and a Novotel branch in IKIA, with a total of 500 rooms.
