King Abdulaziz International Airport is located 19km north of the city of Jeddah and is Saudi Arabia's busiest airport, serving 13 million yearly passengers.
Opened in 1981 after seven years of construction, the airport is named after King Abdulaziz Al Saud and occupies an area of 15 square kilometres.
King Abdulaziz International Airport contains north and south passenger terminals, as well as Royal Saudi Air Force facilities and an exclusive Royal Terminal. The airport also encompasses a specially designed Hajj Terminal, built to accommodate the many travellers who pass through the airport on a pilgrimage to nearby Mecca (Makkah).
The Hajj terminal is amongst the world's largest air terminals and can accommodate up to 80,000 passengers at one time.
The airport contains a range of onsite facilities including shops, restaurants and worship areas and is currently undergoing major redevelopment. The completed project will result in three new terminal buildings that will be able to accommodate up to 80 million passengers each year.
Etihad Diamond First and Pearl Business Class passengers can make use of the First Class Lounge at Jeddah Airport.
