Dammam (Arabic: الدمام‎ Ad Dammām) is the capital of the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, the most oil-rich region in the world. The judicial and administrative bodies of the province and several government departments are located in the city. Dammam is the largest city in the Eastern Province and third largest in Saudi Arabia, after Riyadh and Jeddah. It is an important commercial hub and port.[citation needed]

Dammam, and the rest of the Eastern Province, is served by the King Fahd International Airport (KFIA), the largest airport in the world in terms of land area (approximately 780 km2), about 20 km to the northwest of the city.

Dammam's King Abdul Aziz Sea Port is the largest on the Arabian Gulf. Its import-export traffic in the country is second only to Jeddah's port.
