It is in the final stages of development, and it is anticipated to significantly bolster the airports standing as a regional hub when implemented.
"We are highly committed to providing exceptional travel experience in a secure, safe and comfortable manner," Mr Al Binfalah said on BAC's participation.
"It is very important to learn from industry leaders during such prominent events in order to stay on top of the industry's trends, and to be updated with latest technological and sustainability developments.
"This will indeed help us explore the best solutions that we can integrate within our development strategies to maintain BIA as a world-class airport," he added.
