KAIA’s capacity is planned to reach 80 million passengers per year

King Abdulaziz Airport is the gateway to Saudi Arabia for a large number of pilgrims. The airport is close to the cities of Mecca and Medina, two of the holiest sites in Islam. During the 2005 Hajj (pilgrimage) season it received 3.5 million travellers and around two million pilgrims.

The redevelopment will take place in three stages, the first of which should be completed by the first quarter of 2011. After the completion of all the three construction stages, the airport's capacity is planned to reach 80 million passengers per year.

At the end of the first stage the airport's capacity is to increase initially from 13 million passengers to reach 30 million passengers each year. The expansion of the airport includes the construction of support services building, renovation of the existing South and North Terminals and upgrades to the existing runway and airfield systems to accommodate the Airbus A380.
