The expansion of Bahrain International Airport is a part of the Airport Modernisation Programme (AMP), a comprehensive development plan designed to improve the infrastructure and services at the airport to cater to future aviation needs.
The modernisation programme includes a new 20-year airport masterplan, which includes the construction of a new passenger terminal, in addition to the expansion and refurbishment of the existing terminal.
The first stage of the project was officially launched in March 2015. Construction on the terminal building began in February 2016, and is planned to be completed by 2020.
