Jeddah’s new King Abdulaziz International Airport is likely to become fully operational by Ramadan, according to local media reports.
According to an Okaz report that quoted General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) spokesman Ibrahim Al-Ruasa, the number of departing and arriving flights has reached 4,900, with 654,000 passengers on board.
Over 2.5 million passengers have been transported on board 30,000 flights since the beginning of the operation of Terminal One at the airport in May 2018. It is confirmed that the private sector would operate Terminal One soon in the new airport, within GACA’s endeavor to carry out the privatization strategy.
There is also a plan to raise the operation capacity of the airport and improve the passenger’s experience.
