French company Paris Aeroport has won a contract to design a new passenger terminal at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi.

The contract involves preliminary design work of the new passenger terminal as well as baggage sorting systems, said Gratien Maire, CEO of Paris Aeroport, a subsidiary of Groupe ADP.

“This project involves a 115,000 square metre expansion, including the merging of three boarding satellite buildings,” the company said in a statement.

“ADP Ingénierie will be in charge of the preliminary architectural design of the building, its interior architecture style and the design of baggage sorting systems and air bridges,” it added.

KAA aims to increase the airport’s capacity from the existing six million to 10.3 million passengers per year.
