King Fahd International Airport
KFIA DESIGN BACKGROUND
The terminal complex is planned to accommodate two major terminals: one
for Saudi Arabia national air carrier, and the other for foreign air carriers. The
terminals and their concourses will face each other across a central area, developed in
the manner of a park, extending between the aircraft cross-taxiways at each end of the
The West Terminal - first of the two to be constructed - was planned to handle 11.6
million passengers per year by 1995 and 16.2 million passengers by 2005. It is
characterized by a monumental portico on the landside. The portico emphasizes a gesture of
welcome to passengers on both the arrival and departure levels. The airside consists of a
linear concourse which provides access to and from the aircraft through 31 contact gates.
The park will contain a control tower and support building, a parking structure, and a
mosque set in a plaza surrounded by formal gardens. Remote from this central terminal
complex, there is another terminal; The royal pavilion
is for use by the King, his entourage, and foreign dignitaries.

The mosque is the other principal structure, which
is huge and takes center stage of the main airport design.
King Fahd International Airport is about 60km from
Dhahran International Airport.
Another view showing the main passenger terminal. The interior of
the terminal is extremely beautiful and has been carefully designed.
At present there are about eleven steerable docking tunnels to
ensure that aircraft arrivals are moved quickly and efficiently into the terminal.
The tower is one of the tallest and most elegant
that I have seen, if the lifts aren't working there are fifteen storeys to be climbed
before you get to the VCR.
The VCR is extremely spacious, and can accommodate
fifteen controllers comfortably.
During strong winds the tower can sway by as much as
2 feet at the top, you can feel quite sea-sick!
