Dammam Airports Company (DACO) has signed two agreements with Vanderlande and Serco Middle East to improve operations at King Fahd International Airport in Saudi Arabia.

DACO’s agreement with Vanderlande will see the two entities work on introducing a state-of-the-art baggage handling system, a statement said.

It added that the deal with Serco has been agreed to install cutting-edge fire and rescue services at the airport.

“Our top priority at Dammam Airports Company is to contribute to the development of aviation infrastructure in the kingdom through a series of strategic developments at King Fahd International Airport,” said Turki Abdullah Al-Jawini, CEO of Dammam Airports Company.

"We are pleased to partner with global leaders like Vanderlande and Serco Middle East to execute our long-term plans for the airport, and transform it into a major hub for air transportation within the region and beyond."

With the goal of expanding King Fahd International Airport’s operational efficiencies and overall capacity, DACO was established in July 2017.
