Egis Awarded Two Contracts from Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) for the development of AlUla Airport's Private Aircraft Terminal

Saudi Arabia, 4 May 2023: Saudi Arabia's Royal Commission for AlUla has chosen Egis, the multidisciplinary engineering and operations company, to undertake several projects related to the development of the Private Aircraft Terminal, otherwise known as a Fixed Based Operator or FBO, at AlUla's International Airport. 

This new project is a continuation of the collaborative work between RCU and Egis which began last year with the opening in November of a new airport hangar for private aircraft. Built in line with clean energy standards, the 3,000sqm hangar is equipped with ground flight and engineering crews and can also provide long-term parking services.

Egis’ current scope of work is divided into two components: expansion of the existing hangar, to provide the necessary storage, maintenance and operations space, and the development of a new purpose-built FBO Terminal building. Egis will provide a comprehensive range of services, including a complete architectural design and engineering package for detailed design, airside design and airport operation support services, construction and turnover support services, infrastructure and landscaping design, airfield geometry and master planning, gradings, airfield lighting, markings, signage, and more.

AlUla International Airport, and its development, is a key element in RCU’s strategy to position AlUla as a premier global tourism destination for history, heritage, culture, and ecotourism. The airport acts as a gateway to northwest Arabia, enhancing AlUla’s rapidly growing status as a modern and efficient logistical hub for the region and supporting the comprehensive regeneration of AlUla County as a whole. Ongoing development work at AlUla’s International Airport is also firmly aligned with RCU’s strategic goal of boosting annual visitor numbers to more than two million people by 2035.

“The expansion of infrastructure at AlUla’s International Airport is ongoing and in keeping with the pace of development that has transformed AlUla into a unique destination for visitors from around the world. The first and last thing private plane passengers experience during their visit to AlUla, is the FBO Terminal that will be built to the highest standards as part of our ongoing collaborations with Egis. Key partnerships such as this are an essential part of RCU’s journey towards growing AlUla’s tourism appeal as well as attracting investment in a range of dynamic and rapidly growing sectors that are shaping the future of northwest Arabia,' said Eng. Amr Almadani, CEO of RCU.

Over the past two years, Egis has been actively involved in the development of AlUla's infrastructure in multiple areas including environmental and consulting work. “We are proud to continue working with the Royal Commission for AlUla to support the development of its infrastructure, airports and more. We are committed to providing exceptional quality and innovative solutions that meet the needs of our clients and the community,' said Alaa Abusiam, the CEO of Egis in the Middle East and South Asia.
