The Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC) development is the centrepiece of Abu Dhabi International Airport's multi-billion dollar investment programme. The construction of the MTC and overall expansion of Abu Dhabi International Airport are vital to enable the diversification of the Emirate’s economy by fostering growth in other industries through increased connectivity. The ambitious project will provide a home base for the UAE's national carrier, Etihad Airways.

Since 2006 Abu Dhabi Airports has been receiving numerous prestigious awards from prominent international and local organizations in acknowledgement of its operational excellence. Abu Dhabi Airports works with the best suppliers and procure and manage the delivery of a significant amount of goods and services within budget and on time.

Abu Dhabi International Airport is spread over an area of 3,400 hectares (8,500 acres). More than 30 airlines offer services to over 120 destinations in more than 60 countries with non-stop services to all six inhabited continents.

SPS SysQon provides dedicated Design Consultancy services for Security, as part of the core team of architects and consultants for the Abu Dhabi Midfield Terminal Project.

Airport security attempts to prevent any threats or potentially dangerous situations from arising or entering the country. It includes many systems and procedures, only some visible to the passengers and many in operational spaces restricted from the general public. The MTC terminal will utilize the most advanced techniques to safeguard against any dangerous situation, illegal items or threats entering into an aircraft, country or airport.

Designed to facilitate 40 Million passengers annually with options for this to increase further in capacity to 60 million. An additional facility is under consideration that would take the capacity to 80 million. The iconic structure of the MTB building will include retail areas, a museum, hotel and offices with a commitment to sustainability.
