Saudi Arabia is to build a 10-gate airport in the Red Sea coastal city of Jazan, according to the country’s General Authority of Civil Aviation.

The airport, to be named after King Abdullah, will be built on an area of 52,000m² and have the capacity to handle up to 2.4m passengers a year, reports Arab News.

Located 30km from Jazan Economic City, it will include a three-story passenger terminal with a VIP lounge, control tower, air cargo zones and other facilities.

The authorities, who are said to be accelerating the implementation of the project, held a technical presentation on Saturday, 18 March, for interested local and international contractors.
