Almaty Project – Kazakhstan

Published on

In February 2020, ADP Ingénierie signed a Design Service Contract for the Passenger Terminal Building (PTB) Expansion for the Almaty International Airport, Kazakhstan. CAMEEA BU is in charge of the project.

ADP Ingénierie works on this contract in collaboration with Groupe ADP, TAV Airports and TAV Construction, who envisage the start of the construction phase in summer 2020. Groupe ADP just announced the signing of a Share Purchase Agreement by its TAV Airports subsidiary (in consortium with VTE Capital) for the acquisition of 100% shares of the airport.

Almaty is the largest city in Kazakhstan and Almaty International Airport is the main hub in Central Asia with around 6.4 million PAX in 2019, a bit less half of whom on international routes.

With this project, ADP Ingénierie marks its official come back[1] in Kazakhstan and shows its will to enter further into the Central Asian market.

The scope of the Design Service Contract consists of the concept and preliminary design and the preparation of outline specifications for a duration of 5 months.

ADP Ingénierie is designing this international terminal with a capacity higher of 6 million passengers for a size of 50,000 sqm with 5 contact stands (3 code C and 2 MARS stands).

Additionally, a landside viaduct will be connected the new terminal with the existing one.

Our experts are developing a new BHS with state of the art security systems.

Moreover, in line with the latest airport trends and ADP Ingénierie knowledge, a central duty free with walk-through experience will be created.

In addition, while performing the pre-design of a terminal expansion project for Almaty International airport, some of our experts are working on post COVID-19 solution to prepare the restart of the traffic. The purpose is to comfort passengers and reassure them that they can travel in safe conditions.


We wish all the best to our team to manage this project in this unprecedented situation.


[1] In 2006-2007, the airport authorities of Kazakhstan asked ADP Ingénierie to conduct a master plan study relative to the installation of a new passenger terminal located on a new 250 ha area in the south of the runway, which, upon opening, should have handled all international traffic and a commercial activities zone (businesses, hotels, and a business and leisure centre).

ADP Ingénierie teams proposed a modern and history-based building incorporating a mixture of glass and wood; a building in the shape of the traditional tents of the nomads of Central Asia. This configuration could allow the terminal's capacity to be expanded to 6 million passengers.
