September 24, 2019

JEDDAH — Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman inaugurated on Tuesday the new King Abdulaziz International Airport (Terminal 1) at a ceremony organized by the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA).

The airport terminal, sprawling over a total area of 810,000 square meters and annual capacity to hold 30 million passengers in the first phase, is one of the largest airports in the Middle East.

After touring the terminal facilities, the King pressed a button to mark its opening. Earlier, upon arrival at the venue, the Monarch was received by Prince Khaled Al-Faisal, emir of Makkah and advisor to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, Prince Mishal Bin Majed, governor of Jeddah, Minister of Transport and Chairman of GACA Dr. Nabil Al-Amoudi and GACA President Abdulhadi Al-Mansouri.

The King watched video presentations on the main features of the new airport and another on civil aviation in the Kingdom. The Monarch also witnessed another presentation titled the “New World Front.”

Speaking on the occasion, Minister of Transport Al-Amoudi said the civil aviation sector in the Kingdom has recently achieved qualitative leaps and creative developments.

“This has contributed to 4.6 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP),” he said while citing the report of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

The number of domestic and international airports in the Kingdom has doubled to 28.

As a result, the number of passengers increased, after being limited to 47 million passengers in 2010, reaching 74 million passengers in 2014 and to about 100 million passengers in 2018.

The minister said the new terminal includes 220 counters for airlines, 128 counters for passports, as well as 46 gates, which are connected to 94 movable bridges serving 70 aircraft at the same time in addition to parking for over 21,600 cars.

The ceremony was also attended by several princes, ministers, senior civil and military officials and a number of diplomats accredited to the Kingdom.


The new airport had the soft opening in May 2018 with the landing of a domestic flight from Al-Qurayyat. As of Aug. 9, 2019, the new KAIA (Terminal 1) began operating Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) international flights to Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Muscat airports, bringing the total destinations to 24.

More than 26,000 engineers and workers belonging to 100 companies raced against time to complete the first phase of the project, costing SR27 billion.

Located 19 km north of the Jeddah city, the airport is regarded as a world-class iconic and high-tech gateway to the Two Holy Mosques. The KAIA, one of the largest aviation hubs in the world, is a smart, environment-friendly, unique landmark of the Arab and Islamic architecture.
