Algeria’s Rabah-Bitat airport terminal was commissioned last week, followed by the first flight departing to Marseilles in France
The new airport terminal is located in Annaba, a city located nine kilometres south of Algeria.
The facility was built in four months, following a series of interruptions, said Algerian transport minister Boudjemaâ Talai. According to him, the new terminal adds value to Annaba’s transport sector. Some of the new features include check-in counters, baggage handling and improved customs facilities.
With the new terminal, the Rabah-Bitat airport capacity has gone up to 700,000 passengers annually, with the possibility of introducing new domestic/international lines.
