TransCore was selected by Amana-Walbridge Joint Venture to design, implement, and maintain through June 2017 a state-of-the-art, RFID-based parking and car/bus terminal access control system for authorized staff of the New Doha International Airport Authority. TransCore is providing and installing the system that will be operational in mid second quarter 2013.
The New Doha International Airport (NDIA) Phase One will open in December 2012 and is four kilometers from the existing facility on a 5,400-acre site. It will replace the current Doha International Airport that currently handles 21 million passengers a year, and will now be able to accommodate 24 million passengers a year. When the project is complete in 2015, the airport capacity can support 50 million passengers, two million tons of cargo and 320,000 aircraft landings and take-offs each year. NDIA will also be the central maintenance hub for Qatar Airways’ international fleet.
Karim Rizkallah, TransCore’s managing director for the Middle East, commented, “The New Doha International Airport will be one of Qatar’s showcase intelligent transportation systems (ITS) that provides a secure facility that operates at peak logistical capacity with optimized traffic flow in the authorized staff facility.”
