DACO Signs Strategic Agreements at Airport Show

With the objective of enhancing King Fahd International Airport’s (KFIA) operational efficiencies to meet growing demand, Dammam Airports Company (DACO) signed two strategic agreements with Vanderlande and Serco Middle East at the 18th Airport Show, Dubai.

As part of DACO’s agreement with Vanderlande, global market for value-added logistic process automation at airports, the two entities will work on introducing a state-of-the-art Baggage Handling System (BHS) at KFIA that will help make travel procedures smoother for airport personnel, passengers and airlines.

“Our top priority at DACO is to contribute to the development of state-of-the-art aviation infrastructure in the Kingdom through a series of strategic developments at King Fahd International Airport,” Turki Abdullah Al-Jawini, CEO, Dammam Airports Company. “Guided by our vision to transform airports and redefine the travel experience, our efforts in the last 10 months have focussed on expanding the airport’s operational efficiency, as it witnesses a steady growth in passenger traffic and an increased demand for commercial services.”

DACO has also signed an agreement with Serco Middle East, a leading provider of public services, to install cutting-edge fire and rescue services at the airport.
