Bechtel to manage City Airport development program

Engineering firm Bechtel has been contracted to manage London City Airport’s multi-million-pound City Airport Development Programme. The work includes expanding existing terminal facilities and creating new airfield infrastructure for a further 30,000 flight movements annually. The new facilities will enable the airport to cater for up to 6.5 million passengers by 2025.

Bechtel will work as part of an integrated team over a five-year period to expand the existing terminal, construct a new three-story passenger pier, and add seven new aircraft stands and a new aircraft taxi lane.

Paul Gibbs, managing director, Bechtel, said, “Delivering London City’s expansion in an operational, urban airport surrounded by water, presents complex challenges that our team can meet. We will partner with London City to enhance this important gateway with minimum disruption to passengers, airlines and the community.”

Declan Collier, CEO of London City Airport, said, “The appointment of Bechtel signals the next important step toward the start of construction on this significant development. Their expertise and experience will ensure that the program is delivered responsibly, professionally and skillfully, while the airport remains operational. Meanwhile, our millions of passengers will continue to recognize the speedy and efficient customer experience that differentiates the airport as one of the most convenient in the UK.”

Bechtel has managed more than 40 airport projects in the past decade including expansion programs at London Gatwick Airport in the UK and McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada.
