United Projects for Aviation Services Company (UPAC) signed a five year concession contract with a total contract value of KD 5.352 million, with the Incheon International Airport Corporation (IIAC), for the development operation and management of the parking lot and related facilities at the Kuwait International Airport’s Terminal 4 (T4). T4 is the dedicated terminal for Kuwait Airways. Under the terms of the contract, UPAC will manage the T4 parking lot and related facilities including security, cash collection, and maintenance.
The parking lot holds a total capacity of 2,457 parking spaces (657 in the long-term parking and 1,800 in the short-term parking), all of which are shaded and spacious, and a short walk to the satellite building where passengers easily cross the departure bridge connected directly to the terminal.
The parking lots will utilize state-of-the-art parking equipment that UPAC will install and manage. These will include technologies such as license plate recognition technology, and automated entry and exit lanes. In addition, UPAC will install Auto Pay Stations for swift and convenient customer payment, further facilitating customers’ entrance and exit to the T4 terminal. Additional services that will be offered at T4 include valet parking, taxi and limousine services.
UPAC currently manages the operations of Kuwait International Airport’s main Terminal 1 parking and related facilities, including the airport mall, in addition to the management of real estate and parking facilities at the airport’s Sheikh Saad Terminal and Discovery Mall in Kuwait City. Outside of Kuwait, UPAC is one of three Kuwait-based companies developing Abu Dhabi’s Reem Mall.
