Dammam Airport Reviews

Dammam Airport also known as King Fahd International Airport (KFIA) (Arabic: مطار الملك فهد الدولي‎) (IATA: DMM, ICAO: OEDF), is the world’s largest airport in terms of land area located 25 kilometers (16 mi) northwest of Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

Dammam Airport’s basic infrastructure was complete by the end of 1990, which allowed the Allied forces engaged in the first Gulf War in early 1991 to use the field for the storage of military aircraft. KFIA was the base used by all USAF A-10s (144) during the Gulf War. It was much more than a storage area. The US Army had many units there before the start of the war. The General Authority of Civil Aviation of Saudi Arabia finally opened the new Dammam King Fahd International Airport on 28 November 1999 to commercial traffic, and all airlines transferred their operations from Dhahran International Airport, which had been in use until then.

The new Dammam airport serves the entire Eastern Region of Saudi Arabia and in particular the growing urban complex made up of Dammam, Dhahran, Al Khobar, Qatif, Ras Tanura, while its catchment area also covers Jubail with total population of about 2.5 million served.

Dammam Airport is the third major hub for Saudia, and furthermore was a hub for the now defunct Sama Airlines.
