Kuwait University students showcase designs for Jazeera Airways’ new terminal

KUWAIT: From locally inspired designs to avant-garde and ultra-modern designs, 30 students from Kuwait University’s College of Architecture showcased 15 architectural designs for Jazeera Airways new terminal in an exhibit hosted by Jazeera Airways and attended by university faculty, senior executives from Kuwait’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Jazeera Airways.

The student exhibit received a warm welcome from Jazeera Airways staff, and was toured by Kuwait University’s Dean of College of Architecture Dr Omar Khattab, student project supervisor Dr Mohammad Al Jassar, and from Jazeera Airways, Chief Operating Officer and Accountable Manager Abdullah Al Hudaid, Vice President for Ground Operations Naser Al Obaid.

Following the tour, the airline awarded the top three designs as part of its support for initiatives taken by the students. The awarded students were:

– First place: Aisha Al Saraawy and Nouf Bin Nasser
– Second place: Mohammad Al Mansour and Yehya Adnan
– Third place: Hussa Al Fozan and Haya Al Anjari

Chief Operating Officer and Accountable Manager Abdullah Al-Hudaid said, “The projects we saw today exceeded our expectations by all measures. We often see architecture students focusing on designing residential buildings in their university years, however, this exhibition reflected a move to infrastructure driven by their need to find solutions to the problems and challenges they are facing first hand. I thank the Dean of College of Architecture Dr Omar Khattab and the project’s supervisor Dr Mohammad Al Jassar for taking this initiative and giving their students the new Jazeera Airways Terminal assignment and congratulations to the winners who we hope to become pioneers of the aviation infrastructure sector.”

The students’ projects were inspired by the airline’s July announcement that it obtained the government’s approval to build and operate a dedicated passenger terminal at Kuwait International Airport. Jazeera Airways plans to launch the terminal in 2018.

The airline’s new terminal will feature state-of-the-art check-in facilities and features tasked to streamline the traveler’s on-ground experience and make it hassle-free, both on departure and arrival. The terminal will provide a range of check-in options, including conventional check-in counters, self check-in bag drops, remote check-in, mobile check-in, and an electronic immigration pass. The terminal is part of the airline’s ‘Next Big Thing’ series of value boosting projects and initiatives tasked with creating a better travel experience on ground and in the air.
