Saudi Terminal Expansion

A NEW international terminal has opened at Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Al Madinah province in Saudi Arabia.  The country’s General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) said the new facilities had been launched to improve services to visitors and pilgrims, adding that work was continuing to develop the apron space at the airport to accommodate up to five super-jumbos at the same time.
In July, plans were announced to develop King Abdulaziz International Airport, the home base for Saudi Arabian Airlines and the entry point for the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah.  The airport will be expanded in three phases, reaching an ultimate capacity of 80 million annual passengers by 2035.
