Thales delivered communications and security solutions for the first phase of the new Bahrain International Airport.

Built in two phases, the Bahrain International Airport expansion covers 210,000 square meters, quadrupling the size of the existing terminal and increasing its capacity to 14 million passengers a year. The project is an important step in achieving Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030 and aims to cement Bahrain’s reputation as a leading aviation hub in the region.

With more than 30-years presence in the kingdom of Bahrain, Thales has built strong partnerships with public sector organizations including the Ministry of Transportation and Communication. Thales is one of the main local partners embedded in the ecosystem of the kingdom promoting localization in order to develop sovereign capabilities in line with the Economic Vision 2030.

Through its local company, it intends to foster its contribution to the kingdom’s ambitions to develop a knowledge-based economy with outstanding civil infrastructure and security, underpinned by a strong local industrial technology base to support growth, localization and industrialization strategies.

Thales was subcontracted for the supply of an integrated solution covering security, safety and airport operations, as well as communications and infrastructure for the Bahrain International Airport terminal building, car parks and Central Utility Complex. These technologies focus on smart security, including advanced modular solutions such as video analytics, abnormal behavior or conditions detection, smart incident management and resource management tools. Thanks to its long-standing experience in the air mobility industry, airport security and identity management, Thales provided a fully integrated offer to secure and optimize every operation in the airport.

Through centralizing the management of airport operations, Bahrain International Airport is guaranteed a high level of business continuity and traffic flow within the airport. This will also lead to reduced waiting times while ensuring the best possible safety conditions, improving passenger experience and increasing infrastructure performance. Thales solutions also enable the production of relevant performance indicators (KPIs) to inform decision-makers in real time and make the organization more efficient.

“We have ensured that Bahrain International Airport has been equipped with the latest smart and innovative solutions,” said Alain Correia, managing director, Thales Bahrain. “This guarantees optimum protection for passengers, staff and facilities, and meets the demand for enhanced security at the new airport by Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications and Bahrain Airport Company.”
