Riyadh Airport Reviews

Riyadh Airport also known as King Khalid International Airport (Arabic: مطار الملك خالد الدولي, IATA: RUH, ICAO: OERK) is located 35 kilometers (22 mi) north of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, designed by the architectural firm HOK, and Arabian Bechtel Company Limited served as the Construction Manager on behalf of the Saudi government.

This Riyadh Airport consists of 4 passenger terminals (only three of which are in use) with eight aero-bridges each, a mosque, covered and uncovered car parking for 11,600 vehicles, a Royal Terminal (for the Kingdoms Guests from Government Heads, and Saudi Royal family use), a central control tower (one of the world’s tallest), and two parallel runways, which are each 4,260 meters (13,980 ft) long. The land area allocated for this airport is among the largest in the world. The airport occupies an area of 315 square kilometers (78,000 acres). Riyadh Airport was constructed to meet the increasing international and local air transport requirements for Riyadh. The airport that KKIA replaced, Riyadh Airport (close to the city center), is now a Royal Saudi Air Force airbase. King Khalid International Airport (KKIA) opened for operations in late 1983.

Riyadh Airport was an alternative landing site for NASA’s Space Shuttle.
