BAC chief development and technical officer Abdulla Janahi said:
“The renumbering of the aircraft stands is a key component in the overall development of BIA, which will help to improve operational efficiency. Moreover, it demonstrates BAC’s continued commitment to international standards and best practices set by governing bodies, including the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and Airports Council International (ACI).”
“Although the size and location of the aircraft parking stands will remain unchanged, the new numbering system will be more convenient for the growing number of airlines operating out of BIA, especially once the new terminal opens. One of the AMP’s most important goals is to enhance the overall airport experience, not only for passengers but also for BIA’s commercial partners. The new terminal will be capable of processing 130,000 air traffic movements a year, and we want to ensure every movement is as seamless as possible.”
