As part of its work program, the government is completing the new passenger terminal at Kuwait International Airport, known as T2, Alrai Media reported. The terminal is designed to be LEED Gold Certified, meaning it will be environmentally friendly and energy efficient. The roof will be equipped with photovoltaic panels to generate solar energy to operate the building. The terminal will be able to accommodate 25 million passengers annually and will include 51 boarding gates and aircraft parking lots. It will also be able to accommodate and load 21 AIR BUAS and A380 aircraft at the same time.
