75 years as a leader in aviation

Developing, designing and delivering global airport solutions

Bechtel is a world leader in building, expanding, and modernizing existing airports to meet the needs of the future. We have worked at nearly 100 airports around the world, delivering many of the largest, busiest, and most technologically advanced airports—such as those in Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, China, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Australia, Oman, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States.
As a result of our work, many of these airports have been selected by industry surveys as best-in-class globally or in their respective regions, including North America, the Middle East, Asia, and Latin America.
Our involvement in significant aviation projects such as Gatwick, Hamad, Muscat, Dubai, McCarran, Miami, Incheon, and Hong Kong international airports has helped us to develop and refine innovative concepts and solutions to the development, design and delivery of major, complex infrastructure challenges.

Our applied approaches to world-class airport developments cover state-of-the-art terminals and facilities. Other examples include the planning and delivery of infrastructure to accommodate new generation aircraft, such as the A380, modern passenger processing and environments for ultimate passenger experiences coupled with innovative commercial developments and viable investment opportunities.

For more than 75 years we have brought value as planners, designers, project managers, contractors, and owner-operators, and we remain committed to taking a leadership role in the development of aviation infrastructure around the world. 

Bechtel's aviation work forms part of our Infrastucture business.
