“We are delighted to provide continued guidance and support to our client with a specific focus on safety and operational efficiency. Terminal 5 will remain operational during HBS machines replacement and our consultants and our engineers will closely coordinate with all contractors to make sure operations run smoothly until final commissioning.”

For over five years now, Egis has been supporting transformation at Riyadh Airport through major airside upgrade of taxiways and apron and systems and equipment upgrade with the replacement of passenger boarding bridges, 400Hz power units and pre-conditioned air.

After successful completion of the initial projects, Egis said Riyadh Airports Company continues to place trust in it to support development and expansion and accommodate future traffic growth at the second largest airport in Saudi Arabia.
