Port Moresby International Airport.
Port Moresby International Airport is the country's main airport with international connections and the hub for all national airports. Three major airlines and more than 200 other operators provide international and domestic services at Port Moresby International Airport. Passenger traffic has grown form 300,000 passenger in 1997 to approximately 1.4 million passengers in 2015 and freight demand has significantly increased as PNG enjoyed economic growth over the last 10 years.
Project scope and schedule
The current domestic and international terminals have limited capacity to accommodate current and future demand. The NAC has undertaken the schematic designs for the expansion of the international and domestic terminal facilities as well as the externsion of the international apron. The NAC has also developed schematic designs for the VIP facilities within the internationall terminal facitlites, in ancipitation of the APEC summit in 2018. The NAC will provide bridging documents and wishes to engage a contractor to produce the construction drawings act as engineer of recod and architect of record and to construct these various facilities. It is expected that these projects will be completed no later than August 2018, so that they are available for use in time for the APEC Leaders Summit in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. The NAC anticipates awarding a contract to the successful contractor in September and expects contractor mobilization by mid-October 2016. Total project timeline is estimated to be 22 months.
The expression of interest will assist PNG National Airport Corporation in developing a list of prospective contractor organisations or contractor consortiums to be subsequently invited to submit proposals for the design and construction of the International Terminal Building expansion and associated aircraft apron extension at Port Moresby International Aiport.
